Diamondhead attorney wins election for vacant House seat

DIAMONDHEAD — Gulf Coast attorney Patricia Willis has won the state House of Representatives District 95 special election.

Complete, but unofficial, returns show Willis received 52.4 percent of the vote in yesterday’s election to defeat three other candidates.

The 60-year-old Willis, from Diamondhead, is an attorney and Waveland city prosecutor.

House District 95 includes parts of Harrison and Hancock counties.

Others on the ballot were Grant Bower, Tommy Ballard and Sherri Carr Bevis.

Willis succeeds the late Rep. Jessica Upshaw. Upshaw was found dead March 24 of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound at a home in Mendenhall.
