In this episode of Mississippi Stories, Mississippi Today Editor-At-Large Marshall Ramsey sits down with Natchez Mayor Dan Gibson to discuss his first year in office. In that time, he has faced a pandemic, hurricanes and a severe winter storm.

But, he also has had several successes. Being a mayor is nothing new to Gibson. Previously the mayor of Crystal Springs, Gibson moved to Natchez five years ago. He’s a lobbyist, a piano player, a Natchez bed and breakfast owner and, now, mayor. He defeated independent challenger Phillip West for the mayor’s office by running on a platform of bringing jobs and economic opportunities to Natchez.

In this interview, Gibson talks about some of those economic opportunities.
