JACKSON — The newest member of the Mississippi Senate was sworn into office Wednesday.

Democrat Angela Turner of West Point won a Jan. 15 special election to succeed her father, the late Sen. Bennie Turner.

District 16 covers all of Clay County and parts of Lowndes, Oktibbeha and Noxubee counties.

Bennie Turner served 20 years in the Senate before he died in late November at age 64. His daughter will fill the final three years of the current four-year term he started.

The new senator’s name has been reported as Angela Turner Lairy, but Senate staffers say she has ordered business cards simply as Angela Turner.

Angela Turner is an attorney, as was her father.
