OUR OPINION: Road, bridge maintenance ignored, won’t go away

Reprinted from www.djournal.com 

Despite studied indifference in the highest echelons of Mississippi’s Republican Party leadership, the issue of maintaining our state’s highways and bridges in safe condition won’t go away.

MAS joins with NACo in sharing our support for the families and communities affected by the recent tragedies. 

“Please pray for safety, peace, unity and love throughout our state and our nation,” says MAS President Connie Rockco (Harrison).  “John Donne once said ‘No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent…any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.’”
