Jackson County Supervisor Manly Barton said Reeves has been “a real good friend to Jackson County” during his two terms as treasurer.
“He’s responded to us every time we’ve gone to him for help.” Barton said.
Paul Clark, co-owner of Sav Rex, said Reeves campaign stop would be the first of many this political season.
“Our flagship store was wiped out by Katrina,” Clark said. “It was always the stopping point for all the politicians. This is good. We’re getting back in the game.”
