Congressman Childers to launch district wide working tour

By Jeff Daley – email

Booneville, Ms (WDAM) - Travis Childers is kicking of his district wide "Putting North Mississippi First" tour. He will be visiting small businesses and work places to talk with North Mississippians about the issues that matter to them and share his record of working for the First District.

The tour begins Wednesday, October 6th in West Point at the Cafe Ritz at 11:45 p.m. Childers will serve lunch and be presented with a major endorsement by local leaders.

Childers office contends his opponent in the upcoming first congressional election, Alan Nunnelee, refused to talk directly to North Mississippians when he ducked an AARP debate, claming he was "booked up".

"I've been working full-time since I was 16 years old. Serving the people of North Mississippi is the most important job I've had," said Childers in a prepared statement. "Today, North Mississippi families are struggling to makes ends meet. I've been fighting to create and save jobs and improve our economy, protect seniors' Social Security savings, and provide our children with the quality education they need to succeed. It's important to me to hear from the people of the First District about these issues. That's why I've been in all 24 counties since day one. I look forward to continuing to put North Mississippi first by talking directly with voters about the real issues that matter to them."

Childers says he knows working for North Mississippians is a privilege and claims he has kept his word to serve as an independent voice, stand up  for hard working families and always put North Mississippi first.
