The race for the Biloxi mayoral seat now has 10 candidates.
The seat became open when Biloxi’s longtime mayor AJ Holloway left office to pursue medical treatment, before resigning from the position shortly thereafter.
One of the final candidates for the position, Kenny Glavan, came as a suprise candidate. Glavan was acting mayor when he announced his candidacy; he had previously said he wouldn’t run for the office, which is one of the reasons why he was chosen to fill in for Holloway until the election. City Council president Felix Gines called a meeting to try to remove Glavan from the seat, but Glavan can’t be asked to resign until the 60 day mark, reports the Sun Herald.
That special election will be held on April 28th.
