Gov. Tate Reeves wants Mississippians to Stay in Mississippi

JACKSON, Miss.–Gov. Tate Reeves wants state lawmakers to help him attract Mississippians to Mississippi. In other words, he wants young people and people with talent to stay in the state instead of benefitting other places with their skills, what is commonly called the “brain drain.”
The governor was sworn in for his second term on the steps of the Mississippi Capitol, giving a speech that was unusually devoid of references to Conservative or partisan issues. Instead, he focused on doing what it takes to land big business in the state and keep talent here.
“I want every child to have the opportunities for an education and a career that enable them to be Mississippi forever,” he said. “I want companies that are born here to know they can grow here.”
Reeves said he believes legislators of both parties have chosen a path to make Mississippi better.
“Let us be united by our mission to make Mississippi the home for all its sons and daughters forever.”
The ceremonies included members of both parties.
