Nettleton, MS – Last week, the Bureau of Economic Analysis released a new report on GDP percent growth and personal income growth by state for the fourth quarter of last year - and Mississippi was ranked dead last in the South under Tate Reeves.
Tate Reeves says that Mississippi has a “booming economy,” but under his failed leadership, Mississippi has fallen in business rankings. CNBC’s “Top States For Business” had Mississippi ranked 45th in 2021, only to fall to 50th in 2022. CNBC’s ranking puts Mississippi at the bottom of their list because Tate Reeves has failed to invest in Mississippi’s workforce, lagging in funding STEM education for years.
“Maybe if Tate Reeves spent less time enriching his campaign contributors and his personal trainer and focused more on growing Mississippi’s economy for working families, Mississippi would be better off. One thing is clear: Tate Reeves is good for his campaign donors but bad for business,” said Michael Beyer, Communications Director for Brandon Presley.
Brandon Presley is a fighter who keeps his promises, stands up for the little guy, and isn't afraid to ruffle more than a few feathers to deliver results for hardworking Mississippi families. Brandon served as Mayor of Nettleton from 2001 to 2007, where he balanced the budget every year, cut taxes twice, and got the town moving again. As Public Service Commissioner, Brandon opened up meetings that had been closed to the public for decades, brought high-speed internet to some of the most remote and forgotten parts of Mississippi, put people back to work with the Hire Mississippi program, and saved taxpayers over 6 billion dollars.
