Phyliss J. Anderson will officially kickoff her second campaign for chief of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians with an announcement Monday in Philadelphia.
Anderson and incumbent Chief Beasley Denson will be on the Sept.6 ballot.
Anderson had defeated Denson in a July 5 runoff. However, the Tribal Council, citing voting irregularities, threw out the results of the election and set a date for another vote.
Anderson is a Tribal Council member from the Red Water community in Leake County. If elected, she would become the first female chief of MBCI.
Denson was elected in 2007, defeating longtime chief Phillip
Martin. Martin died in 2010.
