TUPELO – Education topped the list of concerns cited by Northeast Mississippians at an “Ideas Tour” stop Tuesday at City Hall.
Led by state Speaker of the House Philip Gunn, R-Clinton, the tour gave residents a platform to share their concerns and ideas for the Legislature to tackle when it convenes in January.
Fourteen other House and Senate members from the region joined Gunn at the Tupelo stop. More than 100 residents packed Tupelo’s City Council chambers in which the forum was held. Those who wished to speak raised a hand and had five minutes when Gunn called on them.
