Attorney General Jim Hood has ruled that City Councilman Paul Tisdale can resign to become the city's Chief administrative officer.

Mayor Andrew "FoFo" Gilich said he plans to nominate Tisdale for the job soon. The Biloxi Council will have to confirm his nomination.

Tisdale, the former superintendent of Biloxi School District, will have to resign his council seat and give up the compensation he received for that position.

Both Hood and the Ethics Commission said Tisdale must serve without pay or benefits for the CAO job that has an annual salary of $105,000.
