Speaker Philip Gunn to Host Third Mississippi Solutions—an Ideas Tour
Jackson, MS—For the third year in a row, Speaker of the House Philip Gunn will host a series of non-partisan town hall meetings around Mississippi for his MS Solutions—an Ideas Tour. Speaker Gunn will make various stops around the state during the week of September 22, 2014.
The purpose of the meetings is to provide a local forum for citizens to share ideas they may have for improving Mississippi. While Speaker Gunn encourages Mississippians to share any suggestions they may have, he also encourages them to provide possible solutions for their concerns.
“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.
“Mississippians have responded enthusiastically the last two years that we have held MS Solutions—An Ideas Tour,” said Speaker Gunn. “The meetings provide an outlet for us to hear from Mississippians all over the State. Not everyone has the opportunity to come to Jackson and meet with elected officials. So, we essentially bring the Legislature to the people.”
Each meeting lasts one hour and is open to the public and media.
