Gov. Phil Bryant’s energy vision offers a wealth of possibilities

STARKVILLE, Missisippi — When it comes to jobs and future economic development, it’s pretty easy to get Rebels, Golden Eagles and Bulldogs to sing out of the same hymnals with a reasonable expectation that the majority of the rest of the state’s population will sing along.

Gov. Phil Bryant, a die-hard alumnus of the University of Southern Mississippi, headlined a recent Governor’s Energy Summit on the campus of Mississippi State University that featured four dynamic leaders of the U.S. and global energy industry – including University of Mississippi graduate Stephen Johnson, the president of Itron Cellular Solutions. The summit was sponsored by the Mississippi Energy Institute and Mississippi Development Authority.
