Harrison County board rounding into shape

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Two Harrison County supervisors seats opened up when the sitting board members got into trouble with federal prosecutors. After Tuesday, voters in Districts 2 and 4 are another step closer to choosing their new supervisors.

In the District 2 runoff, Angel Kibler-Middleton defeated Gulfport city councilman Ricky Dombrowski. She got 62% of the vote. As a result of GOP party runoff, Kibler-Middleton will face an independent and a libertarian candidate in the November general election.

The District 2 supervisors seat opened up after Kim Savant resigned, and then pleaded guilty to a federal conspiracy to commit bribery charge.

District 4 democrats tapped Kent Jones to be their nominee in the November 3 election. Jones received 56% support in his Tuesday night victory over Chris Fisher. Jones faces republican Leisa Leisy and independents Merriell Ray and John Bouie in the general election.

That seat opened up in the spring when William Martin took his own life moments before federal charges against him were to be released.
