“I believe Mississippians deserve to know how their elected officials and candidates asking for their votes are truly representing them. Questions about how public officials spend taxpayer money, how they apply their personal values to a broader community they serve, and how they leverage their positions of power are too often ignored in this state.”— Adam Ganucheau
