JACKSON — Mississippi Republican Party (MSGOP) Chairman Lucien Smith issued the following statement about Governor Bryant’s State of the State address:
“Regardless of political party, we all owe a debt of gratitude to our Governor for his public service and the results that have followed.
“During his final State of the State address to the Legislature, Governor Bryant showed why Mississippi voted — in an overwhelming fashion — for him to serve our state as Governor for eight years. Not only does Governor Bryant have the unique ability to connect with voters in all corners of our state, he also holds a record of improving our education system and has been named one of the top governors in America for recruiting private sector jobs to grow Mississippi’s economy. Today, he outlined a clear vision of success and the opportunities that lie ahead, offering tangible solutions to conquer any challenges we may face.
“I am confident that our lawmakers will continue their work to implement conservative policies that will benefit all Mississippians, and I thank Governor Bryant for putting us on a path to a stronger future.”
