Answering the Call: Hurricane Ida

Michael Watson update

We have all seen the devastation Hurricane Ida caused our friends to the west. During a recent conversation with Louisiana Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin, he stated his office was conducting a supply drive for those affected most by the storm. In a quick email to our 100+ employees, I noted that we would accept donations for our neighbors in need if anyone felt compelled. Let me tell you, the SOS team showed up and showed out.

Together, we collected 100+ cases of water, 100+ bottles of hand sanitizers, 100 flashlights (with batteries), and a wide variety and supply of non-perishable food items. While I am always proud to be your Secretary of State, I am prouder to work beside such amazing individuals who answered the call to help those in need. is an online news site serving Simpson and surrounding counties as well as the State of Mississippi.
