Charlie Hoots Tuesday earned a seat on the Southaven Board of Aldermen with his victory over Greg Paylor in a Ward 2 runoff election. 

Former television news photojournalist Charlie Hoots has been elected to represent Southaven's Ward 2 on the city's Board of Aldermen. 

Hoots, formerly with WREG-TV as a photojournalist, defeated Greg Paylor 242-218 in Tuesday's runoff election. The vote was needed after a February special election culled seven candidates down to the final two who ran against each other in the runoff election.  

Paylor is an insurance executive who previously was a police officer. He finished second to Hoots in the special election Feb. 13 to replace Ronnie Hale, who had resigned in the midst of legal issues related to pornography and prostitution charges.
