Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs endorsed Republican Delbert Hosemann for Lieutenant Governor in a 30-second ad launched today. Hosemann, who is currently serving as Secretary of State, grew up in Warren County.

“We need a strong leader who knows how to bring people together, and that’s why I’m supporting Delbert Hosemann,” said Flaggs, a former member of the Mississippi House of Representatives. “He has big ideas to grow our economy . . . and grow our workforce for the future.”

Hosemann and Flaggs have partnered together on several projects including tax-forfeited property auctions, which are instrumental to eliminating blight and getting dormant properties back on the tax rolls and into productive use.

“[Delbert will] make Vicksburg proud as the next Lieutenant Governor of the State of Mississippi,” Flaggs concludes.

Central tenets of Hosemann’s platform including increasing career and technical opportunities for K-12 students and supporting small businesses – issues Flaggs has championed as a Mississippi mayor.
