Madison Alderman-at-large Lisa Clingan-Smith has resigned after 17 years in her elected position. The Clarion-Ledger reports Clingan-Smith submitted her resignation to Mayor Mary Hawkins Butler and the Board of Aldermen Oct. 19.
Clingan-Smith is starting work Nov. 1 with the Mississippi Public Service Commission in a federally funded position.
Under the federal Hatch Act, Clingan-Smith said she cannot serve in her elected capacity while on the federal payroll as a special staff chief for the PSC.
City Attorney John Hedglin said the board could not set the date of the election at the same meeting it accepted Clingan-Smith’s resignation.
