EDITORIAL/Unclaimed properties

In a recent press release announcing the publication of unclaimed property in newspapers, Fitch said, “One in five Mississippians has unclaimed property. It is my hope to return as much as possible of the newly reported dollars back to the rightful owners. I’ve seen unclaimed property holders receive checks for over $100,000, which completely changed their lives… and I can’t wait to see people locate their dollars in the new few months.”

What about the past three years before she was seeking re-election?

Technically, state law requires the notices to be published every three years. Fitch defiantly skipped her first year.

But now she can’t wait to see people locate their money and promote herself over the next few months it seems.
