Pols quiet about intentions at Neshoba County Fair
NESHOBA COUNTY — Gov. Haley Barbour says the entire Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians should get to vote on a proposed casino in Jones County.
His comments came during a speech at the Neshoba County Fair. The proposed casino was approved by a split vote of the tribal council.
Little else of any interest was said.
None of the politicians who spoke at the fair yesterday announced their plans for 2011.
Some observers were hoping for announcements, or at least strong hints about next year, from state Treasurer Tate Reeves and Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, who are Republicans.
