MADISON COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The political gene has been passed from Madison County Supervisor Paul Griffin to his daughter, new Justice Court Judge Martina Griffin 

The father and daughter stood side by side earlier this week as they were sworn in and officially started their jobs. 

Paul Griffin has served his community for nearly two decades as the District 5 supervisor. He has one of the largest districts in Madison County.

His daughter is new to the political world. 

She graduated from Jackson State and one time thought she would be a doctor, but she ended up signing up to be a public servant.

"I started out working at a law office never knowing that this would happen, but maybe it was a sign back then," Martina Griffin says.

Supervisor Griffin admits he was surprised when his baby girl told him she wanted to follow in his footsteps but he is honored she can carry on his legacy in with pride.

"We pray every day to God that he keeps us on track, so we can help our fellow  man," he says.
