(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.

Woods had held the seat since 2011.

Whalum originally sued saying nearly 600 votes were improperly cast.
