CORINTH, Miss. – (WCBI) With her board ousted, Kristy White is quitting as director of the Corinth Convention and Vistor’s Bureau after two years on the job.

White submitted her resignation Thursday, a day after Corinth Aldermen and Alcorn County supervisors removed all seven members of the C-V-B BOARD in a dispute over how the board is spending its budget.

Friday afternoon, aldermen appointed new members to the board.

The new appointees are Laura Albright, Billy Taylor, Danny Timmons, Russell Smith, Pauline Sorrell and Luke Doehner. Doehner and Sorrell are returning to their previous spots.

All members represent the city’s restaurants and hotels.

    Why is the convention center losing money? It seems that mismanagement is the cause of loss of revenue.

    This is hardly the time to be losing capable proven employees such as Ms. White.

    How much experience does the Mayor have with promoting arenas?

    Why is the convention center losing taxpayer money?

    This seems like the wrong time to be losing capable and proven employees like Ms. White.

    How much experience does the Mayor have with running and promoting the center much less the city? So far, the center does not show any fiscal viability, or with the loss of valuable employees will it ever?
