Vincent Creel, Biloxi public affairs manager, tells The Sun Herald Gilich likely will be sworn in next week. His public inauguration will be at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Biloxi Civic Center.
The Biloxi Election Commission certified the election late Tuesday night. Gilich received 4,347 votes to Winfield Swetman’s 2,933.
The Biloxi council recently hired Kirkland, a consultant who specializes in government affairs, development, marketing and public relations, as a consultant to plan and produce special events in the new MGM Park.
Councilman Kenny Glavan says Kirkland’s job as transition manager is strictly a volunteer position.
