Education, jobs key

Without hesitation, Mississippi’s new lieutenant governor, Tate Reeves, names education and job creation as his key priorities.

“(Mississippians) want better-paying jobs, better schools and a safe place to raise their children,” he said after taking the oath of office Thursday.

How he plans to get the state there remains to be seen. Reeves is still crafting his legislative agenda and forming his go-team for the legislative session that began this week.
