Adams opens campaign HQ in Columbus. Boyce Adams, the Republican candidate for Public Service Commissioner in the Northern District, officially opened his campaign headquarters in Columbus today. He was joined by former Public Service Commissioner Bo Robinson among others.
Adams said this at the opening: “We have a real opportunity in Mississippi to bring strong economic growth through common sense energy polices in our state. Last week, I joined Lt. Governor Phil Bryant on his Job Creators Tour, listening to people and sharing a vision for a better state. We have a real chance to encourage new businesses to open their doors in Mississippi and bring long-lasting jobs. Mississippi is poised to create a new energy economy, bringing jobs and growth to North Mississippi. But this can only happen if the Public Service Commissioner creates a regulatory environment for businesses to succeed which will in turn create more jobs for our citizens.”
