MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Newscenter 11 caught up with the new person that will be representing Ward 3 in Meridian.

Joe Norwood won the general election by 737 votes in a landslide win over James “JJ” Scott.

Norwood said he is excited to serve the people of Ward 3. He said he will share his 8 years of experience with budgeting and expenses management with the city, develop a better partnership with the county, and increase positive outlets for the youth.

He also said that the campaign trail was long, but there’s still work to do.

“Ward 3 needs a better line of communication with the citizens and the council. We need a stronger voice on the city council in Ward 3. I thank not only my family and friends but the citizens of Ward 3 for believing in me. This is not only a win for me but a win for us,” said Norwood.

Norwood will begin his term at the beginning of July.
