REPRESENTATIVE JOEY HOOD RELEASES STATEMENT REGARDING STATE FLAG
June 25, 2015. (Ackerman, MS.) – Representative Joey Hood today released the following statement regarding calls to change the state flag of Mississippi.
“With regard to the idea of changing our state flag, I will continue to respect the will of the voters of District 35 who voted overwhelmingly along with nearly a half-million other Mississippians against the proposed change.
If a movement to change our flag occurs, that decision should once again be made by the voters rather than by legislative action in Jackson.
I will not ignore the clear voice from the constituents of my district regarding our flag.”
