Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann made his bid for Lieutenant Governor official today by submitting qualifying paperwork with the Mississippi Republican Party.
Hosemann announced his intention to run in early January with a three-day, 10-stop tour to businesses in Brookhaven, Columbus, DeSoto County, Greenwood, Hattiesburg, Meridian, Rankin County, Tupelo, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
As a steadfast conservative who spent most of his career as a businessman in the private sector, Hosemann’s platform touches several major areas centered on growing Mississippi’s economy. These include: refocusing on skills training and increasing the State’s educated workforce; reorganizing state government; encouraging small business and start-up growth; shoring up aging infrastructure; and improving access to healthcare and health outcomes.
“Our focus will be on jobs and creating a skilled workforce ready to hit the ground running the day they are hired,” said Hosemann, who was joined by his wife, Lynn, of 48 years at Mississippi GOP headquarters. “To achieve this, we cannot neglect our education systems or our businesses which are willing to invest in and train our citizenry.”
Raised in Warren County, Mississippi, Hosemann spent the majority of his professional life as a businessman. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business from Notre Dame, a law degree from Ole Miss, and a Master of Laws in Taxation from New York University. He is a former partner of Jackson-based law firm Phelps Dunbar, LLP. Hosemann also served his country in the United States Army Reserves.
Delbert and Lynn Hosemann, reside in Jackson, and have three children, Kristen, Chad, and Mark; and seven grandchildren, Grace, Nora Lynn, Carson, Charlie, Manse, Charlotte, and Howard Delbert.
