Say Goodbye To Burns

One of the men who helped bring the million dollar Nissan project to our state went to work this morning and was told it would be his last day on the job. Governor Ronnie Musgrove told Mississippi Development Director, J.C. Burns he could either resign or be fired. Burns chose to be fired.

The Director said he and the Governor had a difference in management, political and philosophical styles. Musgrove said many people have expressed a lack of confidence in Burns. The Governor said there were a number of factors that contributed to the lack of confidence.

One of those concerns may have been the fact that Burns filed for personal bankruptcy several weeks ago due to a divorce settlement.
