PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (AP) - An inauguration ceremony is scheduled next week for Phyliss J. Anderson who was re-elected as tribal chief of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.

The Neshoba Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1L7OH13 ) Anderson will take the ceremonial oath of office for her second four-year term on Thursday, Oct. 8, at the Neshoba County Coliseum. She says she’s humbled and honored to have the opportunity to continue serving her people.

Anderson was declared the certified winner of the Aug. 25 run-off for chief after the Tribal Election Committee dismissed a complaint filed in connection with the election. She garnered 1,996 votes, or 55 percent, in the election, while challenger and former chief Beasley Denson got 1,628 votes.
