Flowers says DeSoto in good position

DeSoto County is perfectly positioned to benefit from new Gov. Phil Bryant’s emphasis on education and its influence on job creation, state Sen. Merle Flowers said Tuesday.

Flowers, an Olive Branch Republican and early supporter of Bryant’s gubernatorial campaign, said DeSoto County has everything it needs to attract new jobs.

During his inaugural address Tuesday, Bryant stressed, among other things, the importance of education and a skilled work force in attracting economic development projects and associated jobs.
