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.

Serious winter weather is here! Please stay home and off the roads whenever possible—they aren’t safe in most places. Protect yourself and check on your neighbors! Crews are working diligently to restore power where needed. Stay safe, stay warm, and God bless! ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks to all who are having to go to work to make things easier for Mississippians...especially our medical health professionals! Stay safe!!

How come all the schools have not closed? You said stay off the streets and there is still schools that has not said they are closed. Shouldn’t they be closed for the safety of students as well as teachers? We have another storm coming Wednesday as well. Who makes these decisions? So some schools are requiring students stay home tomorrow but teachers have to report to work.

Please let the state employees know before 8am tomorrow if you are closing offices. It’s not going to get above freezing until Thursday so you should already know

You should close the roads so big box stores can’t make employees risk their lives to get to work

This is my kinda of weather and I’m loving it. Just relaxing and looking out the window. For those who must go out be very careful and God bless.

Cold in Mantachie with pure ice. Horses are fed, watered, and have hay in a warm barn. Thanks Governor for keeping the updates going.

But some employers are making their employees go to work.... non essential 🙄😳

Can you see why Cleveland school district never released computers to virtual students. Also expect them to do virtual tomorrow and they never sent out computers. Some children don’t have that technology,also the school was funded to send it out Tate Reeves

And bring your animals inside! Or at the VERY LEAST; make sure they have a heat source!

UPS isn't running trucks in my area today. Please be safe if you have to be out!

I wish you would tell businesses they must close so people didn’t have to go to work.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THERE IS NO SALT TRUCKS ON HIGHWAY 15 IN WALNUT

When things thaw out, please open Mississippi back up.

Yeah just heard an accident right outside across the road. Luckily it was just a thump. He slid a good bit from the red light on 82/Idlewild. Less than a minute a guy pulls up with 4x4 and a side by side. Got him out within 2 minutes

Just curious Tate Reeves...why does it seem that MDOT did NOTHING to prepare the roads before hand, and seemingly aren’t doing ANYTHING now in response? Same goes for the cities and counties, but they aren’t under your purview.

What about state offices tomorrow?

Some don't have a choice their employers make them come in. The roads in Corinth, MS have not been salted at all. The MS TN line and MS AL line is unreal. MS doesn't care about it's working essential residents if so they would salt the roads so these essential employees can continue killing themselves for the nonworking people

Husband had to travel 35 miles to Corinth for dialysis. I’m sick with worry, and prayers for the nurses that had to travel today also..

Fireplace going, food cooked and prepared incase lights go out, fur babies inside blankets stacked up incase we need extra spare room ready incase we need to bundle up.

When are you going to get vaccine shots for Humphreys county. We have a lot of older people who can’t go out of town to get vaccine. It seems like we are the forgotten COUNTY!!!

Tate open it up so health care workers family at home can get vaccinated

Ingalls dont give 'what what' Okay, let me get this straight. Everyone wants this man to 'shut everything down'...when before the weather he was the devil and shutting everything down for the virus... He can't win. Weather Trump's viruses? I'm so confused. (Yes I think it should all be open, and I don't wear masks BUT reading these comments I do feel sorry for the guy!!! It like telling a pizza place u want pepperoni on your pizza then yelling at them for the pepperoni)

#onetermtate enjoy your time in office because you won't be there next term!

Well this is the first ever post Tate Reeves made about the winter weather conditions. You should have done that days ago!

Uncle tator you think you could pay a couple bills for me so I could stay home

Great job by all - we definitely have the best system and the best people taking care of us.

Awesome work by National guard, Air Force, health Depts and all other volunteers!!!!

Thank you National Guard and Mississippi Health Department

Yes! I’m one of them! 2 and done! Thank you to all of the National Guardsmen, health care workers, and Governor Reeves for the excellent job of getting this done! 👏👏👏Well done! 🇺🇸🙏🙏🙏

Thank you to all who are at the sites. So organized and the nicest, friendliest people! God bless you all! Thank you, Batesville, for helping mom and me get vaccinated!

Awesome job by the Mississippi Air National Guard and all involved! So proud of Mississippi!

Thank you for leadership. The national guard has made the difference. Thanks to them for service and public health. Ms maybe last in a lot of things but we have a great public health system.

Rarely do I applaud MS govt but great job! I had an excellent, seamless experience in Tupelo. Both the MS National Guard and healthcare professionals were amazing.

Thanks for everything. Let's don't forget the Public Health Nurses. One mentioned to me they felt like they were being left out and others were getting all the praise. It takes a team.

Great job everyone. We had our first shot two weeks ago at Tupelo and everything ran so smoothly . National Guard and all involved did great job.

Went to one clinic in Lafayette County for first. Barnes Crossing mall for 2nd dose. Both groups have it together and doing an AWESOME job. Thank you ladies and gentleman.

I wish I knew who to send a thank you note to for all the people who are working at the Horse Park in Starkville. My husband and I got both of our vaccines there. The whole process was so organized and efficient. The individuals working were awesome. They were kind, professional, and respectful. There was not one person we encountered who did not display exemplary conduct. They also worked in some of the worst weather ever. On my first vaccine it was poring down rain and on my second vaccine it was probably the coldest and windiest day we’ve had this winter. Saying thank you just doesn’t seem to adequately express my gratitude for a job well done!

They have been awesome! So thankful for each and everyone of them! So proud of our State! 🙏❤️

Got my second Tuesday. A big THANKS to the Health Department folks, National Guard and everyone else involved for making this an extremely organized process. This Nurse is thankful!

Where did we get all these vaccines?? Biden recently proudly proclaimed that “we have enough vaccines to vaccinate 300 Americans!!” That’s right folks, Biden said a whole 300 Americans. 🤣🤣🤣 People actually voted for this bumbling doofus.

Great job by the National Guard and county health departments staff as well as volunteers. I got my second injection yesterday in Desoto County and it was freezing.

The group in Singing River Hospital formerly Garden Park did an awesome job. Thank you to all volunteers!!!

Great job in Tupelo at Barnes Crossing! The Military and all involved did a great job! Made you proud to be an American!

Ive heard NOTHING but good news on how the guard troops have handled this. Thank you to the wonderful men and women serving our state and our nation—always there when we need them, preparing and training when we don’t, and always ready. Thank you.

No thank you and infringe on my rights, and I’ll see you in court!

Is this 1 out of almost 8 Mississippians? That’s pretty awesome. 🙌 Can’t wait to get mine! Too many of my family and friends have lost loved ones....

I still think teachers need to be allowed. They are in packed classrooms with the virus every single day.

We have had great experiences at both Starkville Horse Park and Hattiesburg Convention Center. Very polite and professional at both locations. In and out in thirty minutes or so at both.

So, according to the CDC, even if you get the vaccine you still have to follow quarantine guidelines if you are exposed to anyone with the virus. So what the hell good is this vaccine everyone is pushing? Why do we still have a mask mandate? People are either going to wear them or they are not going to wear them. Mandates are just something to make you feel special.

But not teachers. We want to keep schools open but not prioritize vaccinating teachers. A smoker can get a vaccine before a health school teacher. Thankful for all who are helping. Thankful for all who are getting vaccines. I’m frustrated teachers are not more of a priority
