RELEASE from House Democratic Caucus chair Rep. Bobby Moak:

Jackson, MS – Democrats don’t have to look into a crystal ball to guess what the Governor will cover in his State of the State Address this Wednesday night. It will be more empty promises to fund education, some tripe about silver shovel awards in hard-to-find magazines, a little hot air about inflated job numbers, and made up business rankings. All this while he whistles past the graveyard on a broken education system, record unemployment rates, and hospitals closing around the state.

In anticipation of that, the Democrats’ response will be quite different this year. We’ll be addressing the truth, and we’ll be doing so in a fresh, innovative way. This will be a first for Mississippi, and airing on MPB TV this Wednesday at 5:00 pm.
