Davis resigns, turning over mayor’s office early

Southaven Mayor Greg Davis is interviewed in Olive Branch, during his failed congressional race. The FBI confirmed that it is investigating the north Mississippi mayor who state authorities have already ordered to pay more than $170,000 for travel, stress counseling and other personal expenses billed to taxpayers.  Federal agents are looking for "any allegations of potential violations of federal law," said FBI spokeswoman Deborah Madden.

Former Southaven Mayor Greg Davis

SOUTHAVEN — Mayor Greg Davis’ term does not end until next month, but he announced at yesterday’s aldermen meeting that he is resigning from the job he has held for 16 years a little early.

Davis said he would step down as mayor effective June 28 and pass the reins over to Darren Musselwhite, who defeated him in the June 4 general election.

Davis says he has no plans to get back in politics, but will work in the private sector and spend time with his family this summer.

The Commercial Appeal reports Musselwhite will be sworn in as mayor during a special meeting on June 28.
