Jackson councilmember Brooks resigns, Heads to Memphis

The Jackson City council unanimously voted to pass the motion for Brooks’ resignation at the Tuesday meeting, ultimately concluding his five terms in office.

Brooks resigned from the council to accept a position as Associate Deputy DA at the Shelby County District Attorney General’s Office in Memphis. In accepting the new position, his necessary relocation now leaves a vacancy on the Jackson City Council.

Applications for the replacement in District 3 will be open for two weeks starting Nov. 2. Interested candidates must meet state requirements and be a resident of Jackson’s District 3. Resumes must be submitted to the mayor’s office by Nov. 16.
