Norwood enters race for District 4 Supervisor

By By Lynette Wilson / staff writer
Sept. 4, 2002
A television cameraman who almost won the District 4 Lauderdale County supervisor post in 1999 announced Tuesday he will try again to win the job.
Joe Norwood, who works for WTOK-TV, will run for the job left vacant when Supervisor Q.V. Sykes died in July. Norwood lost to Sykes by 11 votes, 537 to 526, in the 1999 election.
Norwood is the third candidate to announce he will run in the Nov. 5 election to fill Sykes' unexpired term. The other candidates are Melvin Wright and Rickey Harris.
The winner will have to run again in next year's county elections if he wants to serve a full four-year term.
Norwood, a Democrat, said he would work for decent, affordable housing in the district. He said he also would work to clear vacant, overgrown lots in his district.
Norwood said his 20 years of experience in the news business has given him the inside track on local politics. He said his interest in county politics goes back 12 years.
He said he would work with the Meridian City Council, and that there's too much focus on whether a person lives in the city or the county.
