Madison County delegation to seek federal support

Madison County is presenting a unified front to Mississippi’s congressional delegation to lobby for projects that will benefit the entire county.

A group of 30, including eight elected officials, has a full schedule in Washington, D.C., next Tuesday and Wednesday to meet with senators, representatives and their aides to push for funding for economic development, transportation and utility improvements.

“This sends a strong message to Washington that we’re working together, from county and municipal officials to the private sector,” said Gina Daniels, executive director of the Madison County Foundation.
