JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A new year means a new circuit court judge for Jones County.

Judge Billy Joe Landrum is saying goodbye to his decades-long career serving the county. He said he plans to work as a senior status judge with the Supreme Court.

Landrum said he believes Dal Williamson, the man who defeated him in the November runoff, will do a good job as circuit judge.
“He's a very qualified person, a very personable person and comes from a great family,” said Landrum. “He's very smart and he'll do good, all he's got to do is apply himself, he has everything else that's necessary for the job.”

Landrum was in Columbia this week checking on his friends after the tornado. He served as circuit court judge for 28 years.
