Keep Highway 15 Out of Jackson County

Wayne Brown and MDOT held public meetings in Harrison, Stone & Perry Counties about the proposed improvements to State Route 15/57. All these counties are in the path of Alternative B. On the other hand the residents of Jackson, George & Green Counties who are in the path of Alternative C will not have any meetings held in their counties. Apparently we are not going to be allowed the same open forum public meetings to voice our opinions and opposition the residents of Harrison, Stone & Perry Counties enjoyed. The residents of Latimer do not wish to have highway 15 moved to their community. Wayne Brown and MDOT's backhanded attempt to keep those along Alternative C from learning these "proposed improvements" might affect them are shameful. And shame on the Sun Herald for not letting the residents of Jackson County know they should attend the meeting in D'Iberville (Harrison County).

Good news MDOT has agreed to hold a meeting in Latimer.
