SEMINARY, MS (WDAM) - The Town of Seminary has a new mayor this week.

Mayor Pro Tem Dawn Kelly is serving out the remaining term of former Mayor Mike Wilcosky, who resigned on Wednesday.

He was appointed 14 months ago, after the town's previous mayor and some other city officials quit.

Kelly said Wilcosky wanted to focus on running his new hardware store, which just opened in town.

Kelly will serve until a new mayor is elected in June.
