(Memphis) Kevin Woods has appealed a judge’s decision overturning his election win over Dr. Kenneth Whalum, Jr.

On August 19, Judge Kenny Armstrong ordered a new election for the District 4 Shelby County school board seat.

In the August 2012 election, Woods beat Whalum by 106 votes.

Woods had held the seat since 2011.

Whalum originally sued saying nearly 600 votes were improperly cast.
