Mississippi Democratic Party Chairman Jamie Franks has created an advisory council to recommend people for federal appointments in the administration of President-elect Barack Obama.
The council will work with Mississippi's three Democratic congressional members, as well as Attorney General Jim Hood, House Speaker Billy McCoy and executive officers of the Mississippi Democratic Party.
Among the federal positions expected to be available in Mississippi are U.S. attorneys for the southern and northern districts; U.S. marshals for both districts; the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Director of Rural Development and two positions on the Delta Regional Authority.
Franks said he expects Obama to act quickly in filling his administrative team and all appointments.
