JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Family members say Hinds County Supervisor Doug Anderson has changed mind on retirement.
Anderson announced Dec. 13 that he would leave the county board. On Monday, his daughter, Jackie Anderson Woods, said the longtime public official will delay his retirement.
Anderson has been a supervisor for 19 years. He was a state lawmaker before his election to the Hinds board.
Woods tells The Clarion-Ledger (http://on.thec-l.com/UiUQKt) that her father was concerned his replacement being considered by the board didn't live in the district.
Woods says her father stay on until closer to November, when a special election could be held.
Anderson suffers from diabetes and had two strokes in 2011. He's frequently missed board meetings and has had trouble speaking at times.
