(Jackson, MS) – Today, the Bill Waller for Governor campaign released a new television ad
focusing on supporting Mississippi’s teachers with a pay raise, helping students with more job training opportunities and focusing on the teacher shortage that’s reaching a crisis level.
“The future of Mississippi’s economy starts with having an educated workforce,” Waller says in the ad. “That means supporting our teachers with higher salaries—and not just in election years. And it means bringing more job training skills to high school students who don’t go to college so they’re prepared to get a good job. Mississippi has the lowest paid teachers in America and the shortage of teachers is reaching a crisis level. We’ve got to do better. I’m running for Governor to make education a top priority because leadership matters,” Waller concludes in the ad.
This new television ad, titled “Schools”, is the fifth ad released by the campaign in the Republican primary election. The Waller campaign will continue to focus on the critical issues facing Mississippi’s economy including rebuilding our roads and bridges, saving rural health care, supporting our teachers with a pay raise and better preparing high school students with workforce training opportunities for the future.
