Haley Barbour on Environment

Republican MS Governor


Improving, rebuilding & renewing our coast, post-Katrina

A job that wonít be finished for a while is the rebuilding and renewal of our Coast after Katrina. Our state bore the brunt of the worst natural disaster in American history. I remember flying over in a helicopter the morning after the storm; it looked a if the hand of God had wiped away the Coast; in some places for blocks, in some places for miles. Yet there were many reasons for hope & optimism:But the most important reason Iím not only optimistic but absolutely confident about Mississippiís future is the spirit and character of our people. We got knocked down hard, but Mississippians got right back up, and went to work, helping themselves and helping their neighbors. In the process, Mississippiís response to Katrina has done more than anything else to improve the image of our state
