Video: Starkville Ward 4 Seat Will Get Clarity Thursday
STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI)-The court battle over Starkville’s Ward 4 seat should at least get a little clarity Thursday. Special Judge Lester Williamson Junior has set a scheduling conference Thursday with attorneys for David Gaskin and Jason Walker to discuss Gaskin’s election challenge. Williamson has been named to hear the appeal after other circuit court judges handling Oktibbeha County recused themselves. Walker defeated Gaskin by four votes in the May 7th primaries. Gaskin challenged the results saying confusion over redistricting and affidavit ballots left the results in doubt. He seeks a new election. No actual court date has been set.
