The Legislative Wrap-up Breakfast hosted by DeSoto County Chamber of Commerce Tuesday at the Turner Agri-Civic Center Annex was well attended by local government representatives, school officials and area business leaders. The event provided an opportunity to meet with District 26 State Sen. Denise Grimsley and District 56 State Rep. Ben Albritton to discuss achievements of the 2017 legislative session. Both shared their backgrounds and hopes for our rural community.
While the conclusion of the legislature’s seventh session was a disappointment in many respects because of Gov. Rick Scott’s vetoes, both Grimsley and Albritton felt the reforms made in operational procedures will increase transparency and accountability, and lead to a better state government in the long run.
