Delbert Hosemann seeks reelection

HATTIESBURG, MS. (WDAM) - Delbert Hosemann was in Hattiesburg on Thursday announcing that he is running for a second term as Mississippi's Secretary of State.

At Bianchi's Pizzeria, Hosemann said he wants to be rehired by the state's voters so he can see the end results of the work his office has started, and pursue new plans to increase economic development in Mississippi.

Hosemann cited voter identification as a major accomplishment. The issue will be on November's ballot. Additionally, Hosemann said his office has worked to increase the value of the state's public lands through beneficial business practices.

"The biggest thing you will see me do is to continue to try to put more jobs here, and the way we are doing that is we have a tax break now for anybody that does a research agreement with an institution like the University of Southern Mississippi. If they will sign a written research agreement now, it just came out of the House, they will get a seven percent tax credit," said Hosemann.

Hosemann said that plan will enable the state to capitalize on the intellectual property of Mississippi universities. The Secretary of State is traveling to north Mississippi Friday to announce his reelection plans in that part of the state.
