State Representative Receives Backlash
A state representative is receiving heavy backlash after telling a mother to use her own money to buy diabetes medication for her child.
Nicole Nichols sent an email to each state representative asking for assistance in obtaining her daughters diabetes supplies and medications. Republican State Representative out of Ocean Springs Jeffrey Guice responded by saying “I am sorry for your problem. Have you thought about buying the supplies with money that you earn?”
Nichols then posted her initial email, Guice’s response and then her final response on a Facebook page titled “Living in the World of Test Strips.”
Nichols has since received feedback from her supporters, one person even calling Guice a “pathetic excuse for an elected official.”
News 25 reached out to Guice for a response. He has yet to return our phone call.
