Mississippi’s next Governor must have the right experience, temperament and leadership ability to tackle serious challenges including times of natural disasters and emergencies.

Latham served at MEMA for 15 years, overseeing more than 50 governor’s states of emergency, including Hurricane Katrina, before retiring in January, 2016. To watch the new video, click below:
