Speaker Philip Gunn to Host Second Mississippi Solutions—an Ideas Tour

Speaker of the House Philip Gunn will once again set out this fall to visit towns around Mississippi in an effort to create an idea-sharing, solution-inspiring forum for all Mississippians. Speaker Gunn will be making various stops around the state during the week of October 7, 2013.

Mississippi Solutions—an Ideas Tour is a non-partisan town hall style meeting for all Legislators, citizens and the press.

“The purpose of these meetings is to get into communities and hear ideas Mississippians have for improving our State,” said Speaker Gunn. “Last year, we received an overwhelmingly positive response. A variety of people from all different backgrounds attended these meetings and shared some of their biggest concerns and opinions regarding core issues most Mississippians grapple with daily.

“This year, I want to focus on how we can fix those problems,” he continued. “We hope to collect a lot of good information. However, we expect those who come to these meetings to tell us how they think these problems need to be solved. Let me know how you think your elected officials should be solving the issues that matter the most to you.”

Each meeting will last one hour.
