Presley For Governor Campaign Releases Second TV Ad, “Buzzsaw”

Presley: “You Should Have More Money To Spend On What Matters To You, Not Sending It Back To The Government”


July 18, 2023

Nettleton - Today, Presley for Governor launched our second TV ad, “Buzzsaw,” a thirty-second ad where Brandon Presley highlights his support for cutting car tag fees in half by literally cutting a car in half with a reciprocating saw.


In the ad, Brandon saws a car in half - highlighting how serious he is about his plan to cut car tag fees in half and eliminate the grocery tax to save Mississippi families money. As the mayor of his hometown of Nettleton, Brandon balanced the budget and cut taxes for working families, because he knows firsthand that every cent counts in the family budget.

“Mississippians are ready for a leader like Brandon Presley who isn’t afraid to take a buzzsaw to taxes kicking working families in the teeth,” said Ron Owens, Brandon Presley for Mississippi Campaign Manager. “Tate Reeves has had 12 long years to cut taxes for working families, including high car tag fees and the highest-in-the-country grocery tax, and he hasn't lifted a finger because unless you can write him a campaign check, Tate Reeves doesn’t care about you.”

Watch the ad here and view a full transcript below:

  • BRANDON PRESLEY: These days it feels like everything is costing more.

  • I know what working people are going through because growing up, my family scraped just to get by.

  • That’s why as mayor of my hometown, I balanced budgets and cut taxes, and why, as governor, I’ll finally axe the grocery tax.

  • And how about this? I’ll take a saw to the cost of car tags and cut them in half.

  • Because you should have more money to spend on what matters to you, not sending it back to the government. It’s that simple.

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 got the town moving again, then balanced the budget every year and cut taxes twice. 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.
