Judge disqualifies would-be councilwoman

GREENWOOD — A Mississippi judge has disqualified Dorothy “Dot” Glenn from joining the Greenwood City Council two days after she was sworn into office.

Circuit Judge Henry Lackey ruled Friday that Glenn doesn’t live in the ward from which she was elected and didn’t reside there at the time she applied to run for office.

The Greenwood Commonwealth reports that Lackey ordered a July 16 special election between Andrew Powell and Norman Smith.

Powell and Smith finished second and third, respectively, in the Democratic primary that Glenn won on May 7 with 56 percent of the votes. She didn’t have an opponent in the general election.
