Regarding the tour, Speaker Gunn said, “The purpose of these meetings is to get into communities and hear ideas Mississippians have for improving our state. Last year, we received an overwhelmingly positive response. A variety of people from all different backgrounds attended these meetings and shared some of their biggest concerns and opinions regarding core issues most Mississippians grapple with daily.

“This year, I want to focus on how we can fix those problems. We hope to collect a lot of good information. However, we expect those who come to these meetings to tell us how they think these problems need to be solved. Let me know how you think your elected officials should be solving the issues that matter the most to you.”
