Monday morning, Cheikh Taylor and Kevin Ford were sworn into the Mississippi House of Representatives.

Both were elected during special elections in November.

Taylor will be representing House District 38, completing the term of Tyrone Ellis, who retired.

Ford will be representing House District 54, completing the term of Alex Monsour, who was elected as a Vicksburg alderman.

I’ve always been passionate about serving my community, so I’m excited to now be able to do that on a state level,” said Taylor. “I look forward to working, on behalf of my district, with other members of the Mississippi Legislature.”

Taylor currently serves as executive director of the Brickfire Project, a nonprofit child-centered organization that includes a daycare and after-school programs. He has also served on various groups’ boards, including Habitat for Humanity, Oktibbeha County Board of Supervisors’ Advisory Council, Starkville Area Arts Council and Oktibbeha County Food Policy Council.

“I am honored that the people of District 54 have entrusted this position to me,” said Ford. “I am excited about the opportunity to work with other state leaders to improve our state.”

Ford works at Ford Insurance Agency in Vicksburg, a business he established with his wife, Julie. The couple also owns a specialty coffee shop and bakery in town.

Taylor and Ford join Stacey Wilkes (District 108) and Missy McGee (District 102) as new House members for the 2018 Legislative Session.

Congratulations to Rep. Kevin Ford. We welcome you to the MS House. #msleg
