Steven Palazzo supporters open Hub City campaign office

By Colleen Donovan - bio | email 

HATTIESBURG, MS. (WDAM) - Supporters of South Mississippi congressional candidate Steven Palazzo opened his Hattiesburg campaign office on Monday.

Palazzo is a Republican from Gulfport, who could not be present for the office opening because he has been activated for two weeks of base operations training at Camp Shelby. Steven Palazzo is a member of the National Guard Reserve.

However, his wife Lisa was in the Hub City to welcome the satellite office located next door to Newk's Restaurant, and speak with supporters of the coast business owner.

Lisa Palazzo says the Pine Belt is like a second home for the couple because they both attended Southern Miss. She said her husband's race against Representative Gene Taylor will be an uphill battle, but one they are prepared for.

"It is time that we have a fighter, someone new. He's had twenty one years in there to do what he thinks he could do for South Mississippi. Now it is time for someone who wants to go in there and proxy for the people of South Mississippi and who wants to fire Nancy Pelosi, not enable her," said Lisa Palazzo.

The Hattiesburg office is one of four Steven Palazzo's campaign has set up throughout the fourth congressional district. The general election takes place November second.

    Heat Index, you hear Rex, Nick, & I talk about it nearly everyday in the summer. We all have a basic idea of what it is but do you know what it actually measures and why it's important? To answer these questions you have to know why it was invented. According to Daniel Lamb with the National Weather Service in Jackson, "Heat index was created to help measure the degree heat stress on humans that can occur with the combination of high temperatures and high humidity."
