It looks like Phil Bryant is doing an OK job as governor, if you are looking at job growth statistics
Bryant ranks 14th in the U.s. in job creation among all current U.S. governors during their respective terms, according to a new report from On Numbers.
On Numbers, a group endorsed by the Memphis Business Journal, analyzed private-sector employment levels using seasonally adjusted data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The score for each governor is based on a comparison of the annual job growth rate for his/her state and the corresponding figure for the other 49 states.
North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple ranked first, followed by Rick Perry of Texas and Gary Herbert of Utah. Tennessee’s Bill Haslem ranked No. 4.
Mike Beebe of Arkansas comes in at No. 23.
