Governor's Office Moves To The Gulf Coast And South Mississippi
Governor, Staff, Agency Heads to Visit Six Counties In December During Four-Day Tour

(Jackson, Miss.) - In an effort to reach out to constituents who do not live near the Capitol, Governor Barbour is moving his office to the Gulf Coast and South Mississippi December 6 - 9 and plans to tour six counties during his visit. This is the second relocation of the Governor's Office. Governor Barbour moved his office to Northeast Mississippi in July.

"It is important for me to be available and hear the needs from citizens from all parts of the state," said Governor Barbour. "This visit is intended to be an effort to bring state government closer to the people on the Gulf Coast and in South Mississippi. Recent events at the Capitol highlight even more the need to make the Coast feel more a part of the process in Jackson."

The Governor's staff and agency heads will fan out across George, Greene, Hancock, Harrison, Jackson and Stone counties and be available to answer constituent questions and work on specific case work.

A planning committee, made up of Gulf Coast and South Mississippi residents, has been diligently working on a schedule for the Governor's Office relocation. They have planned stops at schools and industries, and meeting with numerous groups including: senior citizens, veterans, civic clubs, first responders, economic development leaders, law enforcement, conservationists, educators, and elected officials.

The planning committee includes: Gabe Churchwell, Greene County; Anne Hebert, Jackson County; Al Hopkins, Harrison County; Pat Jones, George County; Faith Koger, Hancock County; Victor Marvar, Harrison County; Howard McKissack, Harrison County; Marsha Peters, George County; Mr.
Lynn Rouse, Jackson County; Wayne Tisdale, Harrison County; and Sue Turner, Greene County.

"I applaud the hard work of this planning committee," said Governor Barbour. "They have recommended some excellent events that will ensure we reach out to as many people as we can squeeze into four days."
