#PublicNewsroom: How the Delta is Overlooked

As journalists, we've heard many times and from many Deltans that issues plaguing the region have long been overlooked by elected officials in Jackson. While covering the 2019 statewide and legislative elections, we want to make sure we ask candidates the questions you want answered. What issues and questions should we take to them? What have the state’s politicians done well in the past for the Delta? Perhaps more importantly, what haven’t they done that could have served you and why?

Join political reporter Adam Ganucheau, who closely covers the Capitol, along with Delta based reporters Aallyah Wright and Kelsey Davis for a conversation about what leaders have done, what they haven’t done, and what Deltans can do about it.

Help us start a conversation in Jackson and the rest of the state about how the Delta is overlooked on solving chronic crises like the state of roads and bridges, education, and employment opportunities. Whether you’re satisfied with legislative action, skeptical about how lawmakers in Jackson serve the Delta or unsure how to make sense of it all, we want to hear from you.
