The Daily Leader, 3/3/8

Third Congressional District candidate John Rounsaville, a Republican from Madison, met with Brookhaven-Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Cliff Brumfield Thursday for a brief discussion on the area’s economic development options.

It was the second such meeting between chamber officials and district candidates. Republican Charlie Ross, of Brandon, has previously engaged in similar discussions while campaigning in Brookhaven and Republican David Landrum, of Madison, is scheduled to meet with Brumfield later this week.

The meetings have been purely informational, Brumfield said, so that whichever candidate prevails in the race for the district’s seat in the U.S. House of Representatives will be knowledgeable about the area’s economic needs.
