Tate Reeves on Budget & Economy

 

 


Economic boom due to fiscally conservative principles

Since 2019, we've raised per capita personal income in Mississippi by approximately $7,000 or almost 18%. We were able to accomplish this momentous feat because we never wavered from the tried and true economic and fiscally conservative principles that have set up states for growth for generations. And we were able to accomplish this despite the left's best attempts to grow government. Our conservative reforms and sound budget management have laid the foundation for this economic boom.

As treasurer, decried state's reliance on borrowing money

Reeves became the state's youngest ever statewide elected official after defeating Gary Anderson, who had more than 15 years of state government experience as head of Department of Finance and Administration and deputy director of the Mississippi Development Authority, the state's economic development agency.

Reeves served two terms as treasurer and made a name for himself decrying the state's reliance on borrowing money. When running for lieutenant governor eight years later, he faced political veteran and Senate Pro Tempore Billy Hewes. Many again highlighted Reeves' youth and lack of legislative experience; Reeves remained self-confident.

"After 20 years in the Legislature and hundreds of votes for more spending and billions more in debt, it's heartwarming to know that Hewes has now finally realized with 50 days to go in this campaign that we need to reduce our debt burden," Reeves told the Associated Press during the 2011 primary campaign for lieutenant governor.
