Small business owners and those who are thinking about starting a small business will have Lt. Gov. Amy Tuck's full attention Monday during a special forum.
Tuck, along with state and regional small business developers, will be in Meridian for a forum at Union Station. The forum begins at 8:30 a.m., and is expected to last about an hour-and-a-half.
Tuck has another thought in mind, Brumfield added. The lieutenant governor has already held forums in Tupelo, Greenwood, Brookhaven, Jackson and on the Gulf Coast. She is gathering information by listening to the concerns of small business people.
She plans to host a statewide forum in August. Using the information that is being gathered during the regional gatherings, she hopes to come up with a legislative package aimed at improving state services to small businesses.
For more information, contact the Mississippi Economic Council at (800) 748-7626.
