Franks In 2007: We Brought Toyota To Northeast Mississippi

Fast forward to about the 5-minute mark and you will begin to hear Franks speak about Toyota’s (then) recent decision to locate in Northeast Mississippi.

Franks would go on to say: “We brought Toyota to Northeast Mississippi and I’m proud to have been a part of that.” Based on those words, you would think Franks had something to do with Toyota’s decision, and I think it is fair to say thought it was a good idea.

Two-and-half years later Franks is now the Democrat state party chairman, and takes a much dimmer view of Toyota when he said this: “Today, we’re spending tens of millions of tax dollars on debt services for Toyota, and we have not one job to show for it.”
