New Choctaw chief election set for Sept. 6
CHOCTAW — Phyliss J. Anderson will officially kickoff her second campaign for chief of Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians with an announcement Aug. 1.
Anderson and incumbent Chief Beasley Denson will be on the Sept. 6 ballot.
Anderson had defeated Denson in a July 5 runoff. However, the Tribal Council, citing voting irregularities, threw out the results of the election and set a date for another vote.
Anderson is a Tribal Council member from the Red Water community in Leake County. If elected, she would become the Choctaws’ first female chief.
Denson was elected in 2007, defeating longtime chief Phillip Martin. Martin died in 2010.
