CADIZ – State officials have indicated that no special election is needed to fill the unexpired term of embattled former Harrison County Treasurer George Campbell as the county Democratic Party forges onward with its appointment plans.

A recommendation will be given and the replacement is to be named at the next committee meeting on May 16. Van Tassel, chairperson of the county Democratic Central and Executive Committee, said it was important for the 15 central committee members to appear and vote next month. Further details, as the committee moves forward, can be found in this weeks print edition of the Harrison News-Herald.
