Kenny Glavan selected as Biloxi's acting mayor

BILOXI — The Biloxi City Council unanimously accepted the resignation of Mayor A.J. Holloway and selected council President Kenny Glavan as acting mayor.

Even before Tuesday’s meeting began, The Sun Herald reports Councilwoman Dixie Newman became the first council member to announce she will run in the election to fill Holloway’s unexpired term.

Felix Gines, who was appointed as acting mayor when Holloway went into rehab Jan. 29, saluted the six-term mayor for his unprecedented time and service to Biloxi over 22 years.

Kenny Holloway, the 75-year-old mayor’s brother, delivered a resignation letter last week to Biloxi Administration Director David Nichols.

A.J. Holloway said he was leaving office due to an accumulation of health issues.
