HATTIESBURG, MS -

Today, Mayor Toby Barker announced two additions to his administrative team, including Betsy Mercier as his office manager and Maryann Harris as administrative assistant to Kermas Eaton, city clerk.

“Customer service is a top priority for our administration, and it’s important that we set a high bar when any person walks into our office.” said Barker. “I believe Betsy and Maryann will bring great enthusiasm and work ethic to the day-to-day operations of the city.”
