New leadership for the City of McComb


McComb’s city board wiped the slate clean with its’ decision to replace the four top employees in the City.

The board voted to replace veteran police Chief Scott McKenzie, city attorney Wayne Dowdy, city Judge Danny Smith and city prosecutor David Brewer.

McKenzie was set to retire December 1. The board voted not to extend his employment.

The turnover comes after a city election in which a new mayor and board members were elected.

The board is hiring state Rep. Angela Cockerham as city attorney, Michael Shareef as city judge, Dawn Stough as city prosecutor and Lincoln County sheriff’s investigator Damian Gatlin as police chief.
Monday, Mayor Quordiniah Lockley told the McComb Enterprise-Journal, he’s the only city employee who can speak to a reporter.
