CARROLLTON, Miss. (AP) – Mayor Russell Wilson is resigning from his post leading the 200-resident town of Carrollton.
The outgoing mayor, who manages Carroll County Farm Bureau insurance agency, says he was recently promoted to manage the organization’s Leflore County insurance agency as well, and no longer has time to be mayor.
Alderman Bernard Taylor, who is the town’s vice mayor, will act as interim mayor until the June municipal elections.
No mayoral candidates have yet qualified in Carrollton.
