TUPELO, Miss. – (WCBI) Tupelo city leaders approve all of the Mayor’s nominations for city department heads.

Despite arguments that he was breaking a city ordinance, Tupelo Mayor Jason Shelton’s first choice for city judge is among the approved positions.

Councilman Mike Bryan said Monday that Willie Allen illegally kept a small satellite dish in his front yard for months.

Bryan and Councilman Jim Newell questioned how Allen can enforce city codes if he doesn’t follow them himself.

In the end, Allen, a long time lawyer, was voted in unanimously in as the city’s first black judge.
