BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) - State Rep. David Baria made a stop in Bay St. Louis for a special presentation.
Baria discussed important issues facing the state legislature in front of dozens of Coast residents. The presentation had a special emphasis on education, and the move to revise school funding formulas.
Bay St. Louis Mayor Les Fillingame was one of the many faces in the meeting. He says it was great to talk about education in the state.
"One of the biggest issues on the agenda of the legislature this year is properly funding education, and I think that's the top priorities of a lot of the legislatures in Mississippi," said Fillingame. "To get the funding right as it relates to education across the state."
Other presentations will be made by state and local leaders later in the year.
