Michel not seeking reelection to State Senate

JACKSON — State Sen. J. Walter Michel, a Republican from Jackson, says he’s not seeking re-election.

Michel says in a news release he wants to devote his attention to his commercial real estate business.

Michel’s district covers portions of Madison and Hinds counties. He’s been in the Senate since winning a special election in 1999.

Michel is chairman of the Senate Economic Development Committee and vice-chairman of the Senate Banking Committee. He says he may consider a future statewide election or a return to the Senate.
