Sen. Fillingane talks politics with local women at luncheon

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Mississippi Senator Joey Fillingane joined the Forrest/Lamar Republican Women's Club Tuesday to talk politics.

Fillingane spoke to the ladies about Voter Identification, Eminent Domain and the most controversial issue on this years ballot, Initiative 26 the definition of 'person'.

Which ever way voters lean, Fillingane said it's important to know exactly what each amendment means.

"I am personally in favor of all three. So, I will be advocating all three but there are people in my district who would disagree with me on one or all three. I still think that people that take an opposite view point from mine need to be educated about what they are actually proposing in these initiatives," said Fillingane.
