OLIVE BRANCH – Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant, the Republican gubernatorial nominee, today announced a series of endorsements from business associations that represent a broad spectrum of employment in Mississippi.
Kicking off the first of his three-day Jobs Tour across the state, Bryant also used the opportunity to detail his job-creation strategy.
“We’re extremely pleased to support Phil Bryant for Governor because of his experience in supporting existing industry and in bringing new industry to our state,” said Jay Moon, president and CEO of the Mississippi Manufacturers Association.”Phil won’t be starting from scratch, and he’s worked to develop new job opportunities all over the state.”
The Associated General Contractors (AGC) and the Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) announced their endorsement of Bryant on Tuesday, joining the Homebuilders Association of Mississippi and the Mississippi Association of Realtors as representatives of major drivers in the state’s economy who are backing Bryant for Governor.
“The reason all five of these key pro-business groups are endorsing Phil Bryant for Governor is that we all collectively believe that Phil Bryant is the best candidate for Governor to reach the goal he has set to make Mississippi the most job-friendly state in America.”
Bryant’s job creation strategy delves into various facets that affect Mississippi’s ability to develop or recruit new businesses and industries, from a commitment to keep corporate taxes low and the elimination of a punitive inventory tax to measures to protect jobs for Mississippians and a forward-thinking push to ensure Mississippi trains it’s workforce for the jobs needed to improve every area of the state.
