Q May an insurance agent continue to write insurance for a school district if his financially independent son is appointed to the school board?

A Yes. If the parent and child are financially independent, then no violation of Section 109 of the Mississippi Constitution or Section 25-4-105(2) will occur, and the board memberís recusal will prevent a violation of Section 25-4-105(1).
