Verbatim press release from Hillary Clinton's Mississippi office:
Mayor Cites Clinton Attention to Issues Facing Underserved Cities
Jackson, MS – Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber endorsed Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary today, citing Clinton’s attentiveness to local issues facing families in often underserved communities. Last week, Clinton took note of a municipal issue in Jackson, praising city officials for their response and transparency, and yesterday, Clinton visited Flint, Michigan, where she has been keenly focused on their ongoing water crisis.
“Hillary Clinton knows how to make it happen,” said Mayor Yarber. “As President, she will give special and needed attention to cities – particularly minority-led cities – and the issues that plague us. She is committed to pushing for creative infrastructure investments and to building on the progress President Obama has made. In my mind, she is the only candidate who can pragmatically achieve important gains for families and communities, and it’s why I’m proud to support her candidacy.”
Hillary Clinton is committed to fighting for families as President, which is why she is proposing policies that benefits communities like Jackson, Mississippi. From her plan to reform our broken criminal justice system, to her proposals to reduce prescription drug and out-of-pocket medical costs, to her $275 billion plan to enhance and strengthen America’s infrastructure, Clinton will make progress for working families in Mississippi and across the country.
