Lynn Fitch talks about runoff

HATTIESBURG,MS (WDAM)-  On August 23rd Lynn Fitch and Lee Yancey will face each other for their party's nomination for State Treasurer.

Fitch, the current State Personnel Board Director led the three-candidate field in the August 2nd returns. Fitch says with the national economy woes reaching local communities voters need to elect someone with experience.

"This is probably the most critical vote that the voters will have this election cycle, because you are about to hire your chief financial officer. So, having someone who understands investments, who understands the debit ceiling, who understands the rating agencies and who understands what is happening across the country and in our state is extremely important," said Fitch.
