Vice President Kamala Harris is coming to Mississippi.
According to a press release from the White House, Harris will be visiting Greenville on Friday, April 1 in order to talk about the current administration’s impact on small businesses and communities within the Magnolia State.
Greenville Mayor Erick Simmons is excited to welcome Harris, saying:
“The Biden-Harris Administration’s investments in small businesses and communities evidence the fact that small businesses and communities, like Greenville, are the backbone of America’s economy. The historic investment of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will make life better for thousands of Greenville residents and create a generation of good-paying jobs and economic growth for our city. It will be my pleasure to show Vice President Harris first-hand the impact that small businesses have had in the success of our community, especially during the past two years battling a global pandemic. Without the historic investments made by the Biden-Harris administration, some of these local stakeholders might not have made it through the challenges presented to all of us over this difficult time. This administration’s commitment to helping local communities thrive in unprecedented circumstances is admirable.
Thanks to Congressman Thompson for his efforts in getting Vice President Kamala Harris to his district in Greenville. The Greenville community looks forward to welcoming Vice President Kamala Harris and Chairman Bennie G. Thompson to Greenville.”
Harris’ visit comes eight months after First Lady Jill Biden made her way down to Mississippi to stress the importance of COVID-19 vaccines.
