Lt. Governor presents Jackson County Chamber of Commerce with new state flag
Today Lt. Governor Delbert Hosemann made his way down to the Mississippi Gulf Coast where he spoke at an event hosted by the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce and presented Mississippi’s new state flag.
Lt. Governor Delbert Hosemann stopped by the Pascagoula Performing Arts Center where he spoke on many topics, including some of what the legislature accomplished this year. “We re-organized the board that does all the prep for teaching our children how to do technical things. We devoted 75 million dollars to broadband expansion and that was matched by the co-op so we get 150 million dollars reaching in more than 50 thousand Mississippi homes that will have access to broadband to teach their children with.”
One of Hosemann’s proudest legislative moments of 2020 is the adoption of Mississippi’s new state flag, which he proudly presented to the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce. “I think it’s reflective of the fact that we got 72 percent of the vote. Now, that’s almost impossible. If you’re a really good politician you might get 58 percent, we had a record turnout of 1.2 million people and 72 percent voted for the new flag.”
Members of the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce say it is an honor to have Lt. Governor Hosemann visit the Gulf Coast and present them with the new state flag. Jackson County Chamber of Commerce CEO Paige Roberts said, “This is honestly one of the greatest honors of my life. The chamber and I worked very hard in support of changing the flag and then in support of getting this flag. We are so proud and thrilled that the people of Mississippi spoke such volumes.”
After the presentation, Lt. Governor Hosemann visited Downtown Pascagoula.
