NATCHEZ — Natchez voters who live in the city’s Ward 6 are asked to go to the polls today to choose a new alderman.

The special election is necessary to fill the seat of 14-year alderman Dan Dillard, who died unexpectedly on March 29. A special election is necessary because Dillard had more than a year left on his term.

Two candidates, Curtis Moroney, 60, of 208 Winchester Road, and Chris Jackson, 52, of 408 Walnut St., are vying for the position.
