Statement Regarding Harry Sanders’ Comments in the Commercial Dispatch and Clarion Ledger


We are deeply saddened and disappointed that Supervisor Harry Sanders, a partner who has contributed to the growth of our region, made statements in meetings and in subsequent news interviews which cast a disturbing and negative shadow on our community.


Mr. Sanders’ comments to the Commercial Dispatch and Clarion Ledger newspapers in no way reflect the thoughts or opinions of the Golden Triangle Development LINK or its members.


On the contrary, the Golden Triangle Development LINK condemns racism and inequality in all forms.


Economic development is about creating opportunity, and to us, that means opportunity for everyone. It is our job, our mission and our passion to move Mississippi and its communities forward - a direction that leaves no room for such antiquated and abhorrent beliefs as those expressed by Supervisor Sanders.


The LINK remains committed to the prosperity of our region and a future where all citizens of the Golden Triangle are afforded equal opportunities to achieve the American dream.

Joe Max Higgins,
Chief Executive Officer Golden Triangle Development LINK
