Haley Barbour on Jobs

Republican MS Governor


Job creation is a team sport, and weve made a record

Weve had record job creation, and it has been achieved with higher quality, better paying jobs. Toyota is one great example. It has received a lot of attention because Toyotas new plant was the most sought-after economic development project in the US this year, and its being built in Mississippi. This huge Toyota plant will bring in lots of suppliers, with large investments and many new jobs.

Record employment--higher paying jobs. Incredible private and public investment in Mississippi. All these result from aggressively implementing strong, responsible economic development programs. As long as Im Governor, the rip-offs like the Beef Processing Plant are history. Do you remember that fiasco? You should--it cost you $55 million.

For three and a half years weve had tremendous cooperation from local leaders and our federal delegation. Job creation is a team sport. We have a strong team, and in Mississippi, we are moving forward together. You can imagine Im proud of this record.
