DIAMONDHEAD, MS (WLOX) - Nancy Depreo is the newest member of the Diamondhead City Council. She received 62 percent of the vote in a special election Tuesday to fill the Ward 1 council seat left vacant by Joe Lopez.
Kelsey Johnson received the second highest number of votes with 38 percent. Less than 250 people voted in the special election.
Lopez resigned his seat in August. Council attorney Sean Tindell said Lopez and his family moved, and he was unable to return to his ward.
