Lt. Gov Tate Reeves Visits Jackson County

There was plenty to talk about at Jackson County Economic Development’s spring investor’s meeting today, as Jackson County continues to sit in the driver’s seat of Mississippi’s economic engine.
Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves spoke at today’s luncheon and outlined a plan to build on Jackson County’s already impressive foundation. In the last year, Jackson County has made upgrades to transportation and utility systems and continues a good working relationship with Ingalls Shipbuilding, the state’s largest employer. Greg Cronin, the chairman of the board says the county is already in a good position, but plans to continue positive growth: “I would say we’re in an enviable position, I think there are plenty of counties across the county that would love to have the industrial base Jackson County does. I think our mission going forward should be to continue to support that industry, to recruit and to work with new industries coming in to Jackson County.”
Jackson County has over 400 acres of project ready certified sites ready for immediate development.
