Dennis hammers home business experience

Dave Dennis spoke forcefully Wednesday that his business background would make him better equipped to recruit new jobs and to make existing companies more willing to expand in the state.

It is a theme Dennis, a Pass Christian resident and owner of Gulf Coast-based Specialty Contractors, has emphasized as he tries to upset Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant in the Aug. 2 Republican primary and, on Wednesday, he hammered that point home again in an interview with the Daily Journal editorial board.

“My concern, if we make the wrong choice for governor, from a perception point of view… looking at successful private sector versus career politician, many believe we step back,” Dennis said.
