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.

Thanks for not shutting down our state and letting us live our freedom!! Now stop the Jabe mandate on companies.

Don't forget: after six months of being unemployed, a person is no longer counted. And why are 20% of Mississippi children food insecure in this "great state"?

So what are you going to do about Stennis, Ingalls, and the doctors, nurses, hospital staff, nursing home staff and Military that are about to be unemployed ?

Seriously? Never mind that MS is also *still* the poorest and has THE HIGHEST death rate for covid. These policies are killing ppl so he can make sound bites like this for his followers. He apparently lives somewhere besides reality, or just doesn’t care about his fellow man dying for no reason or living in poverty.

What have you done to fight unlawful mandates? All I’ve heard from you is talk?

And wow, this comments section reminds me of the very pressing need to address and fully fund our education in Mississippi.

I’m convinced you wake up looking for ways to embarrass the state everyday 🤦🏾‍♀️

Stop the Vax mandates. Stand with your citizens.

IF he would focus on running MS instead of worrying about what the president is doing he could be possibly be more productive.! His concern should be the citizens of MS not gaining popularity with with Fox News🙄

We have the best Governor ever!

Thank you Governor, I myself am vaccinated but you must stop the mandate.

This governor is such an embarrassment!!!!

This is a sad govenor!! Full of lies an hate.

During the pandemic, Mississippi has managed to maintain a fair amount of normalcy... At least as far I have seen. Thank you #TateReeves

Thank you Governor Reeves for protecting our freedom. We do not need overreaching federal tyrannical government running our state. Now you just need to fire Dobbs.

Time to fight back on the mask mandates now! Stand up with Texas and Florida!

Gov. Reeves .. you represented Our Great State of Mississippi … WELL!!!🙌

Why is it that you can’t do your job but you have time to talk to this nut case fix ms we have bad roads bad schools no jobs that will actually pay our bills and feeds us and you don’t even stand up for us when we clearly do vote for it please resign you can go work for Fox you have the morals for it!!!

It feels like America here. We moved from California last year so my child could attend in person school. I appreciate how Mississippi found solutions, while California made excuses.

I love this state! This is honestly the only other place I’d want to live in (after Arizona). Great governor too!

Ms's economy is moving on despite Reeves and not because of him.

Lets get rid of seat belts, horrid stops signs & traffic lights, anti-locking breaks, swewer sanitation systems, water purification & industrial safety regulations too!!!


Mississippi Strong! Proud to be a Southern American! 💚

If there were an Oscar for pandering, you’d be walking the red carpet tonight.


Protect our freedoms?! You KNOW what to do. Call a special session! Sign an EO banning forced mandates! I can assure you, you will not serve another term if you don't do the right thing. And clearly that is all politicians care about. We the people of Mississippi have had enough!

You aren't doing enough!

We need you to get off tv and call a special session to stop the mandates. We are depending on our elected officials to stand up for us during this time. Most of the people I have spoke with feel as if we have no representation on this issue. Come on and don’t let us down.

Quit talking and do SOMETHING!!!You went on Fox News talking about bidens mandate yet have not called a special session!

He needs to be recalled! He is not for the people of Mississippi. He is only here for himself! He is such an embarrassment towards our state! I mean, we are already the laughing stock in the nation!

Tell me that when you effectively ban vaccine mandates. Where’s your call for Special Session on the mandates?

All I see is protect MS from mandates when yall this states needs them more than ever. So you mean to tell me yall will willing leave your job cause you don't wanna Abide by their rules in which you already follow first yall were against mask and now vaccinations. It makes me wonder if trump had come with a mandate is yall would have followed it. Cause it's seems to me yall only gaslighting each other because it's a democratic administration. But hey let covid flourish May it and rinse this state clean of all it back water racist and anti anyone doing better that you Republicans feel like should stay in their place clean to let peoe with forward thinking mind take control and actually bring this state into the year 2021 and beyond instead of yall wishing it was still Jim crow or earlier when yall felt superior that's what make America great again means right. The entire South is just pathetic

Come on Governor, We the people need you to stand in the gap for us against this mandate. This should be our choice, not the dictator in Washington.

why aren't you calling for a special session to protect us against the vaccine mandates that the Biden administration has imposed

What about the freedom to access the medicine we want such as Cannabis? You won’t respond, you never do! You are afraid to interact with your constituents. You continually prove to be spineless. These are the reasons you will have only one term.

Unless it’s medical freedom...

How about you fight for Mississippians that need your help. How dare you sit by while we wait for you to act like you understand the whole concept of governing. You know the 73% that's back your stabbing.

This is embarrassing. Stop. Be the governor to everyone.

It was a great show Governor!!

So tired of politics. Please try to uplift instead of always bashing. I am conservative myself, but the constant bickering is exhausting. We have so much to be thankful for in Mississippi and America.

Thank you so very much Governor Reeves You always are taking care of our State as well as us . God Bless you and Your Family 🇺🇸

Fear, fear, fear, fear, .... 🙄

You need to have a discussion with the 74% of people that voted!

Protect our work force from a vaccine mandate. Federal, state and private workers.

Follow Florida lead please!!!

I’d rather have my toenails pulled out than listen to that woman and watch tator tot run his mouth instead of his state!!!!

The people voted to legalize marijuana and you and the legislature have ignored that. Call a special session!

You always have some of the craziest topics. Be a leader for ALL people bro not a kid… grow ⬆️

Thank each and everyone of them for their Service ✝️🇺🇸

Hero coming home!

Tate, what about all of the veterans we are losing every single day because they don’t have access to legal medical cannabis in MS? They can fight & die for you, but you won’t allow them to use a plant to heal themselves from a tremendous amount of pain that you & I cannot even begin to understand. They deserve any possible type of treatment that they can get! They deserve free easy legal access to this medication. We want what 74% of us voted for. Now!!! Call the special session already. You are not honoring the will of the people like you said that you would, Tate. #wearethe74


Continued prayers and to all the families who are still waiting
