Musselwhite Sworn In as Southaven Mayor

There is a new mayor in charge of Southaven, Mississippi for the first time in more than a decade.
SOUTHAVEN, MS (localmemphis.com) - There is a new mayor in charge of Southaven, Mississippi for the first time in more than a decade.

Darren Musselwhite was sworn in Friday morning, replacing Greg Davis.

Davis lost his re-election bid earlier this month after serving as mayor for 16 years.

The former mayor's last two years in office were riddled with controversy. His civil trial will continue later this year on charges he misspent thousands of dollars of taxpayer money.

Musselwhite, a local insurance agent, is new to politics. He previously told Local 24 News, "As mayor, first of all I want to send negative publicity away then restore confidence in city hall. After that we'll move forward with business and other things on our agenda."
