This is a news release from the MS House Democratic Caucus
Jackson, MS- Statement from House Democratic Caucus Leader Bobby Moak on Democratic Response to Governor Phil Bryant's State of the State address:
"House Democrats are pleased to have Mayor Parker Wiseman of the City of Starkville deliver this year's Democratic Party Response to the State of the State address. We chose to have a mayor deliver our response because the laws passed at the Capitol have a dramatic impact on the work of our mayors, county supervisors, city council members, and other local office holders every day."
Moak added, "We believe local officials are often better at expressing the importance of stepping across party lines to solve problems. Unfortunately, this is a message that can get lost at the Capitol. House Democrats hope that Mayor Wiseman's address will help encourage our Republican colleagues to join us in finding non-partisan solutions to the major problems facing Mississippians."
