Senate confirms Howorth for TVA

Former Oxford, Miss., Mayor Richard Howorth has been confirmed by the U.S. Senate to become the newest director for the Tennessee Valley Authority, TVA announced Wednesday.

Howorth, a 60-year-old Democrat who owns the Square Books store in Oxford, soon will join the nine-member board that oversees TVA.

The U.S. Senate voted last week to confirm Howorth to the part-time job. Howorth will attend his first TVA board meeting on Aug. 18 in Knoxville.
