According to a governing.com analysis of the recently reported state-by-state Census data, no other state in the country lost more Millennials. “We have yet to give young people a reason to stay and invest in Mississippi,” says Jeramey Anderson.
Mississippi legislators Tuesday announced a new coalition of young lawmakers who intend to create meaningful policy and increase civic engagement among the state’s youth. Co-chairs Rep. Jeramey Anderson, D-Escatawpa, and Rep. Toby Barker, R-Hattiesburg, announced the creation of the Mississippi Future Caucus at a press conference. The bipartisan group comprised of legislators under age 40 will address issues facing Mississippi’s millennial population.
