Ward 4 candidates Irving, Calcote headed to June 23 runoff

The race for the Democratic Party nomination for Natchez Ward 4 Alderman is headed to a June 23 runoff.

Incumbent Democrat Felicia Bridgewater Irving garnered 345 votes, or 47.65% of the vote, and Democratic challenger, Michael Calcote, got 282 votes, or 38.95% of the vote.

To avoid a runoff a candidate must get more than 50% of the vote.

The winner of the runoff will face Republican candidate Brenda Floyd in the July 14 general election.
