GULFPORT — State port commissioner Frances Turnage has resigned from the five-member board.

Commission president Jim Simpson tells the Sun Herald that Turnage emailed late Friday about her resignation. Simpson says she has retired from Mississippi Power and intends to relocate to be nearer her grandchildren. She will no longer be living in Harrison County.

Simpson said he understands the resignation is effective immediately. Her term was set to expire in December 2015.
