Breakfast with the Mayor in Pass Christian


Pass Christian Mayor Chipper McDermott addressed a full house at the Pass Christian Yacht Club this morning, saying the city is on the right path.

Mayor McDermott says the city has seen a lot of growth in the past few years when it comes to new businesses opening their doors; he boasted things like the Hotel Pass Christian and Hotel Whiskey.

McDermott also said there has been an uptick in the amount of houses being built in Pass Christian recently, something he says is a positive and a negative. “They are building houses down here, but these are the large houses and they are people from all over the United States. They are wonderful because they pay a lot of taxes and they are very affluent people. They’re building those and the only drawback is we are such a small town and everyone wants to be on the water. The other ones that they are building in between are like $400,000 and young people in this town are getting slimmer and slimmer.”
