Gov. Phil Bryant said a lot of things Tuesday night in his first State of the State address.
He’s for more jobs. …
He’s against obesity. …
And he’s for education and energy. …
But there was one quote that stood out as Bryant proclaimed that he is also for economic development.
“Economic development is the sun in our universe and everything revolves around it,” Bryant said.
That sounds something like his quote in a Hattiesburg American story by Ruben Mees from Jan. 23, 2007 with the headline, “Bryant launches campaign for lt. governor.”
“‘Education is the sun of the governmental universe; everything revolves around it, whether it’s economic development, transportation or any other issue,’ [Bryant] said, pointing out that Mississippi’s 35 percent dropout rate is unacceptable.”
So, which is it — economic development or education?
I guess it doesn’t matter. It all sounded real good.
