PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - Members of the Singing River Health System Board of Trustees have been asked to resign.

The Jackson County Board of Supervisors called for the resignations Monday in a unanimous vote. Supervisors say the resignations would restore faith in the health system, which has been embroiled in controversy over its handling of an employee pension plan.

Supervisor Mike Mangum called for the vote.

Mangum says he thinks current trustees will “tender their resignations soon.” Meanwhile, he said, supervisors will be “diligently” working to find the “right” people to appoint to those five-year positions.

The vote came after about an hour of heated public comment from residents regarding the health system and its failed pension plan.
