I am a conservative outsider with a proven track record of solving difficult problems. As Secretary of State, I know that I can help lead the fight to get government out of our lives and focus on policy priorities that will lead to rising incomes for all Mississippians.
I grew up in rural Mississippi (Wayne County) and my roots are deeply connected with small-town values. Early in life, I learned the value of hard work as a roughneck in the oil fields of Jones County, but I also knew a quality education was equally as important. As a certified CPA and successful small business owner, I have a clear understanding of how to make our government work more like the private sector. President Trump is leading this fight in Washington. I endorsed Pres. Trump early in the ‘16 GOP primary and I know that he can count on me as a strong ally in Mississippi.
Four years ago, I saw a signature problem our state was facing with the failures of the Kemper County Power Project. I knew that I could help solve this problem, so I ran successfully for Southern District Public Service Commissioner. In my one term as PSC Commissioner, I was able to lead the charge to finally put to rest the continual negotiations on the failed Kemper County Project. My number one goal was to be fair and transparent, but also protect the ratepayers. I’m proud to say that we were successful in these efforts.
Robin and I are excited to bring this message and our campaign to voters throughout our great state. We ask for your prayers as we take this journey together.
