With no opponents in the upcoming election, it is a near certainty that Sandy Coleman Mitchell will be the next Alcorn County tax assessor.
Mitchell, an independent candidate, said she feels “very blessed” to be unopposed in the race.
“I am so thankful to this community for supporting me through the years, and I want to continue being a public servant as long as I can,” Mitchell said. “I am so thrilled for this upcoming opportunity and will work hard to make everyone proud.”
She will take office Jan. 1.
Mitchell is an Alcorn County native from the Kossuth area and said she enjoys helping people.
She felt that the tax assessor position would be a good fit for her since she has dealt with land issues as a 30-year employee of the USDA Soil & Water Conservation District in Alcorn County.
Current Tax Assessor Kenneth Brawner is not seeking re-election.
Incumbent Democrat Chancery Clerk Greg Younger is also unopposed as well as incumbent District 3 County Supervisor Tim Mitchell, a Republican. Independent county attorney candidate Bob Moore is also unopposed.
