UNDATED, Miss. (WCBI)-Democrat Karl Gibbs of West Point was officially sworn in to the House of Representatives today.
Gibbs won a special election runoff Tuesday in House District 36, which includes parts of Clay, Lowndes, and Monroe counties.
The seat was left vacant by the January 13th death of Democratic Representative David Gibbs, Karl’s father, who had served since 1993.
Karl will serve out the current four-year term, which ends in January 2016.
