Desoto Times – Nunnelee makes tour stop in Southaven

Sen. Alan Nunnelee, R-Tupelo, ended a four-day “listening tour” of north Mississippi on Monday, making an appearance in Southaven before more than 60 DeSoto Countians.

Elected to the state Senate in 1994 and current chair of its Appropriations Committee, Nunnelee focused his comments during the event on his disappointments in decisions recently made in Washington.

“What they have done is engage in the crime of generational theft,” he said about Congress’ approval of the economic stimulus package.

The package will cost Americans $1 trillion, an amount that will take generations to repay, according to Nunnelee.

Nunnelee, who is considering a run for the First Congressional District seat currently held by Democrat Travis Childers, also addressed state spending during Monday’s event.
