Election update: Ward 4 down to two candidates

The race for the Ward 4 council seat, which represents areas of west Biloxi north and south of the Bay, became a two-man field Friday after candidate Nick Patano withdrew from the race.

As a result, two candidates will meet in the Ward 4 Republican primary on May 2: incumbent Robert L. Deming III and Rodney McGilvary. There are no Democrats running for the seat.
