For All Mississippi

It was my greatest honor to be sworn in as Mississippi’s 65th Governor on January 14, 2020.

Standing before all of Mississippi, I promised that this administration would be an administration for all Mississippi. That I would defend the loving culture that underpins our quality of life and work to grow an economy that lifts all of our families. I am determined to honor that promise.

I am asking today for you to join me in that mission. We must care about each other enough to overcome our differences. We must be faithful to each other enough to outlast our shortcomings. And we must be committed to each other enough to raise our expectations.

When I took that first oath of office as State Treasurer in 2003, I did not know how long my service would last. All I knew is that you, the people of Mississippi, had demonstrated a faith in me that I might never be able to meet.

I have never underestimated your trust. I have never forgotten the oath to pursue service with the help of our God. And I will wake up every day working to bring us together to make our state be all it can be. Work that will be done by all of Mississippi.

You better not restrict us anymore than you already have Tate

I personally will be first in line to get the vaccine!!! I work in surgery & I’m a 58 year old looking forward to the day I can get the vaccine !!!!

Wasn’t such a good idea to have the State Fair last month was it ? Our numbers didn’t start climbing until a week after the fair packed up and left.

Thank you, and thank you for doing the best that you can!!! People should be mindful of hateful things said about things you cannot control!! Thank you too for not shutting down this state!!!

Oh yes... a vaccine that’s came out in less than a year will be completely safe.... sure thing.


By the end of the year everyone will have the virus. If we let nature do it’s job, we would hit heard immunity by now and everything would be fine

You All depending on a Vaccine that’s May not work Need to Depend on God Hes the Answer

His approach has helped spread Covid!!!! How can not wearing a mask help NOT help spread an airborne virus????

We're still doing really bad at this right now, Tate, even if you can point at people doing worse than us. You know when we were doing really good? It was when we had the statewide mandate.

I feel like that schools in the counties who are under the mandate should go virtual until the beginning of the year. It is spreading like wildfire in schools.

People are mad when he enforces the mask and people are mad when he doesn’t! He is in a no win situation. I wouldn’t have his job for any amount of money in the world.

A mask mandate will help!! Mississippi is in a terrible condition so why not do a mask mandate

Mississippi has 82 counties, over half of them are now under mask mandate!!! Why not the entire state?????

It’s easy to holler for a shut down when you don’t work for a living.

A vaccine that has been tested less than a year when any other drug in the world requires 20 years before FDA approval...

And vaccine injuries will be incurred in record time 🤣 have fun with your needle pushing agenda


I do not believe in the leadership and I’m not taking the vaccine and anyone has any common sense and do their research want take it either.

We take a risk every time we walk out of our doors, drive our cars etc.

This is just a bad flu and it’s curable! When someone died it’s because of the ventilator

He aint perfect, but at least he’s not a democrat. Thanks for giving it your best Gov.

There needs to be a complete lockdown for 2 weeks. Nobody move!

Interesting how there are only Covid deaths this year and no flu deaths.

There's no such thing as colds and allergies now...its all covid 😒

We knew where what was being allowed to take place for the sake of the all mighty dollar world cost people with their health and life But the money from big events was all that mattered and guess what That still is more important than people and their lives

Tate Reeves: no, a statewide mask mandate will not work if it is not enforced!! If you can be fined for not wearing a seatbelt, you can be fined for not wearing a mask!! When do the rights of the selfish override MY rights to occasionally go to the store and feel safe because everyone is wearing a mask?

That guys is so dumb. Some of these counties have never been without a mask mandate and the cases are still rising.

No shit, Sherlock. You should have used your brain instead of following your now-defunct master and called a statewide mask mandate. Sorry excuse for leadership during a dire time.

CBS Special Sunday 11/22/20 mentioned Mississippi as one if the 3 states that is sitting on 14 Million dollars of CARES ACT funds that was suppose to be allocated to Nursing Homes. Where is that money and why hasn't it been distributes properly? Again, you've Shamed our state.

The “surge” is a distraction from the leftist media to distract us from the fraudulent election that took place. And we’re falling for it again.

We will just riot and protests then we will be good.

So could we have a state wide mask mandate? What could it hurt!?

Just like the flu and all they are doing is actually counting the deaths and cases and make it a big deal 🤦‍♂️ folks die every single day every minute and thats what they are possibly counting!! Free the world open everything up and say screw it if you get sick take meds if that dont work go to hospital if that dont work god just needed you with him!! End of story 🤦‍♂️😂

IT IS NEVER GOING AWAY why are people acting like the vaccines are a cure-all? they aren't. masks aren't either. everyone knows masks don't stop viruses. everyone. trash pick up, grocery stores, home depot, office dept, everywhere "essential" is open, THAT is where it is really spreading and everyone knows that BUT they cant shut those down, they're big business so they are killing the small businesses instead, yeah. way to go... and lets not forget amazon workers, and mail delivery.

Accept Linda blue Biden-Harris an move on nothing fraudulent

Masks don’t work period, look up the dang Dutch study findings(if you can find it), if masks did work they would not be letting dangerous felons out of jail daily all over the country! Herd immunity is the only way this will go away an this second surge is a complete lie, the tests were created to pop positive either way. I do not deny the presence of covid but is not as bad as they want us to believe and we need to be protecting our most vulnerable but the rest of us live our lives!!!

You mean it’s not going to disappear “like a miracle”

How many second surges are we on now? Yet, I still don't care.

Yeah you know why you're not going to tell us we can't do it? Because we don't care what you say. Fuck you

Wear the mask. Socially distance.

I guess u should have went against ur cult leader Trump and kept that mask mandate in order. Huh?!

Yeah you can fuck right the hell on off

Thanksgiving is 2 days away

It will not go away , as long as you keep mandating masks , Can't build an immunity , if your not exposed , try doing some research , instead of listening to your dem friends. asshat.

L wr

Here's how you get rid of it. 1) Send all at risk people and pansies home for a month 2) gather everyone up in a big circle and pass around a bottle of whiskey [free government whiskey] until everyone is infected. Two weeks later we can all go out and play again.

Sad to hear that Pat Quinn, co-founder of the ALS Ice Bucket challenge, died yesterday. His idea helped raised awareness—and an amazing $115 million for research—for Lou Gehrig’s disease. His legacy should be a reminder of what big things can be done when any one of us focuses on the greater good! On behalf of Pat Quinn and Ralph Doxey, I’ll repost my challenge from 2014: ...

Congratulations to Booneville’s own Asya Branch—the new Miss USA! We are all honored to have you representing our state. You make Mississippi proud! ...

We voted (in Hinds County for the first time since our 20’s!) Long—but fast moving—lines. Super nice people with lots of different political opinions. Safe and secure.

It fills me with pride for state and country every time. We LOVE, tomorrow, and forever!

2020 has been tough on so many. One group constantly targeted for political attacks has been our police men and women. Imagine how proud I was when my little one told me what she wanted to be for Halloween! ...

Very proud of the frontlines team that has worked hard to attack the COVID-19 virus in Mississippi. Incredible logistical effort to bring targeted resources to the fight, while standing firm that schools and businesses must stay open!

Save lives—don’t destroy them in the process!
