The Mississippi Economic Council is on a statewide tour to sharpen Mississippi's competitive edge as part of its ‘Pathways to Progress' program. Gautier is the 18th of 19 cities where business members met to vote electronically on how they feel about issues like education and transportation. Blake Wilson, the President of the Mississippi Economic Council, says, "We talk about some of the issues regarding 'Blueprint Mississippi', which is an economic development long range plan for the state, but we also give people the chance to give feedback, and that’s very important because there are distinct regional differences that we see from one region to another, so by going out and letting people vote electronically, anonymously, we can get their feedback, and that’s very helpful for setting up our agenda for ‘Blueprint Mississippi’." The event, co-sponsored by the Rotary Club, will identify important issues to be passed on to state government.
