Campaign Update for Cory Wilson (H-66th)

Cory Wilson for House District 66

April 18th, 2007

Campaign Update #1

We hope everyone is enjoying Spring, at least on the days it has felt like Spring! With the 2007 Legislative Session in the rear-view mirror and Tax Day now officially behind us, we are stepping up our efforts to bring positive new leadership to the House of Representatives. Cory?s campaign has been busy, and growing. We want to keep you up to date on our progress.

Pro-Growth Last week, the leading voice of Mississippi business and industry, BIPEC, endorsed Cory Wilson for House 66. Cory?s message that District 66 needs a pro-business Representative who will proactively support economic development for Jackson is resonating. ?I am humbled to be one of only four challengers in the House to receive BIPEC?s endorsement,? Cory said. In BIPEC?s words, Cory offers ?a real opportunity to unseat an incumbent? who has voted anti-business since the last election.

Pro-Neighborhood Last night, Cory attended a Fondren neighborhood meeting where the OurFondren neighborhood association was officially launched. OurFondren?modeled after the Belhaven neighborhood foundation that Cory helped to start?will focus on crime prevention and code enforcement. ?Last week, Stephanie and I attended Arts Eats and Beats in Fondren and Art for the Park in Belhaven. Two great events that highlight our very special sense of community.? Cory, who will serve on the OurFondren Crime Advisory Board, continued, ?These neighborhoods deserve proactive leadership in the Legislature focused on preserving our quality of life. That is why I am running.?

Proactive, Positive Leadership Senator Trent Lott and Representative Chip Pickering are honorary hosts at a fundraiser for Cory in Washington tomorrow. Their support?and that of other leaders?is helping to spread the word that Cory offers new, energetic leadership that the Legislature needs at this moment in Mississippi?s history.
