Mississippi Solutions–An Ideas Tour is Your Chance To Be Heard

Jackson– This is the third year of the tour and it is coming close to you. You’ll have a chance to speak out on Mississippi concerns. 

This makes the third year for the Mississippi Solutions–An Ideas Tour. It is your chance to be heard by state legislature and it is led by Speaker of the House Phillip Gunn. During the week of September 22, you can catch any of the public forums to get your concerns out in the open.

Meg Annison from the House Information Office says that some topics are always coming up.
“People want to talk about education, healthcare, jobs and so we anticipate those topics coming up,” Annison says this isn’t a partisan event “whether you are a democrat, republic or independent it is open for everybody so you can give ideas to make legislation run more smoothly.”

The tour allows for citizens to share ideas they may have for improving Mississippi. Speaker Gunn says that critiques and concerns are welcome but also try to bring solutions to the table.

“Through the years, people have shared their concerns and opinions regarding issues we all care about: jobs, healthcare, education,” said Speaker Gunn. “This year, I anticipate people again echoing those sentiments, but I do hope they will also present ideas as to how your elected officials should work toward solving those issues that matter the most to you.”
