It is a with heart of gratitude that I am announcing that I will not be running for a third term in the Mississippi Senate.  I am thankful for all the support and friendships that I have developed over these last seven years.  It has truly been a great experience to represent the good people of District 35.  For me personally, two terms are enough and it is time for someone else to step up in this position.  I have a great job at Peoples Bank that I am very thankful for and I need to get back to being the best banker I can be for my customers and the employees of our bank.  I am very thankful for the support of my bank over these last seven years as they have given me great flexibility to do the work of the state in the legislature.  I am appreciative of the support and help of the senate leadership over the last two terms and will always cherish the friendships I have made there, especially with my senate colleagues.  I can tell you there are some really good people in the legislature and I am thankful for them


I hope that during my time in the legislature I have lived up to your expectations and represented you in the common sense, conservative manner that I said I would do.  I have done my best to follow through on issues that I told you I would support over this time. My goal when a vote was taken was to represent the people of my district and I believe my voting record will show just that.


Lastly, I want to thank my family who has supported me and been there for me over the last seven years.  It can be a very stressful job and a job filled with long days and sometimes nights, and Melissa and my entire family have always been supportive and I love them all! There just comes a point in life where it is time to slow down some and do some things you really love so I plan doing just that, and maybe even help coach a little basketball somewhere!!  Thank you all and God Bless you and your families!!
