Topic: Protecting Tax Payers Guest Speaker: Russell Latino, State Director Americans for Prosperity Foundation - Mississippi. Americans for Prosperity Foundation is dedicated to the promotion of economic freedom and the American Dream in Mississippi and across our nation. Our goal is to engage Mississippians to make a lasting and positive impact on the Magnolia State. Last year, AFP Mississippi unveiled the Mississippi Growth Project, which provides a principled conservative roadmap on tax, spending, regulatory and education policy. Consistent with the tax principles spelled out in that roadmap, AFP successfully fought against special interest calls to raise taxes on working families by as much as $375 million last year. We simultaneously supported a tax cut that when fully phased-in will provide relief to both job creators and citizens. We won’t rest in 2017. Not only will we protect taxpayers by fighting against any proposal that would increase Mississippians’ tax liability through our “Not 1 More Cent” campaign, but AFP Mississippi will focus on exposing wasteful spending and debt in 2017. We will also highlight those leaders who are defending taxpayers.
Randy Bosarge, Supervisor, District 5, will be speaking to us about issues facing the county and what to look forward to in 2017.
Dane Maxwell, Candidate for Mayor for Pascagoula, will be our guest.
