Q May a member of the Legislature, also serve on a municipal board of aldermen?

A The municipality in question operates under a special charter. While an alderman typically exercises legislative powers, the charter of this particular municipality has numerous provisions granting executive powers to aldermen. An individual serving as a member of the state legislature, while serving simultaneously as a municipal alderman exercising such executive powers, would result in a violation of the separation of powers doctrine found at Article 1, Section 2, of the Mississippi Constitution of 1890.
