The Mississippi Manufacturers Association today endorsed Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves for re-election.

In his first term, Lt. Gov. Reeves has supported policies that help Mississippi companies compete with businesses all around the world. He has made lowering taxes a priority while emphasizing the importance of a strong workforce.

“Lt. Gov. Reeves has worked tirelessly to create an environment that encourages manufacturers across Mississippi to invest in their businesses and their employees,” said Trent Mulloy, Chairman of the MMA Board of Directors and President of Laurel Machine & Foundry Co. “We are fortunate to have a leader like Tate that understands pro-growth policies, and we are proud to support his re-election.”

In his first term, more than 18,000 jobs have been created as companies recognize the benefits of locating in the state.

“The manufacturing sector in Mississippi employs tens of thousands of my friends and constituents,” Lt. Gov. Reeves said. “From Desoto County to the Gulf Coast, Mississippi manufacturers play a key role in growing our economy and improving our communities. I really appreciate having the support of the folks who are investing capital, creating jobs, and producing products that make Mississippi competitive in today’s global marketplace.”
