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.

Thank You Governor Reeves, we are Praying for All People and Furbabies in the Path of Hurricane Ian 🙏🙏🙏

Thank you! Prayers for our Gulf Coast neighbors

Prayers for Florida and everyone in the path of this storm.

Prayers for Floridians!

Thank you. I know the support will be appreciated. My brother is there.

Prayers for all of them. God bless everyone.

Prayers for Florida .

That’s all we are sending??? Mississippi knows exactly what Florida is going through ….. 20 members ??????


I kept them all in my prayers last night.

Thank u for sending help

We closing hospitals so hopefully no one will need them. Ain’t that right?

twenty members? One per region?

Just 20? I guess that’s all that is needed?

Yes because Florida thinks so highly of Mississippi, 😂.. priceless.

Gona get the water situation clean in your state will your at it


Since second-rate dingle-berries like you are always coat-tailing peckerhead ideas like DeSantis's and Abbott's to try to stay "politically relevant", why don't you do exactly like them and just load all the illegal immigrants we've rounded up (the way you cry about it all the time, you'd think we had about eleventy-million of them to spare in Hattiesburg alone) onto a bus and send it over to Florida. Sure they could use that extra labor help right about now 🤷🏻‍♂️.... that is if we even have any illegal migrants to round up here in the Sipp.... do we really have that many here or were you just being full of sh*t... again?

Joe Biden has it covered worry about your own state it obviously needs it.

Tate Reeves you, your supporters and the Florida governor can thank Biden for multiple resources at the ready right now.

Thank you ! Praying for Florida !!!

Well Tate Reeves you have once again proved yourself a POS... But don't worry Tate Reeves and his supporters. Unlike the Florida governor and Trump, Biden isn't playing games with emergency resources and people's lives. Biden already has at the ready resources, medical including ambulance's, money for the state, water, National Guard etc. So sit down and STFU you embarrassment.🤦🤦🤦🤦

You bout the ignorant so called governor I ever seen don't you know Jackson MS is your state but you critize them it makes you look dumb

Tater is that your new aids clinic in jackson

Thats it?

AVM is a serious condition. Too few that suffer from it are diagnosed.

More research is needed to determine its cause and discover better treatments.

I’m very thankful for those working to raise awareness about this issue and I was proud to declare October AVM Awareness Month.

Comment on Facebook

If you're so concerned about this and other diseases that can affect Mississippians, why aren't you doing more to strengthen our hospital system, and ensure Mississippians have access to healthcare? Hospitals all over the state are downsizing or closing altogether and Mississippi continues to rank last, or close to last, in almost every leading health outcome due to your failure to expand Medicaid or even put forth any viable alternatives.

Is that why we have so many hospitals closing and volleyball stadiums being built.

Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with us and help further my initiative of #PrestonStrong in honor of my brother’s journey in battling a Grade 5 brain AVM. It is my joy to work with The Aneurysm and AVM Foundation in advocating, educating, and fundraising for this rare disease! I greatly appreciate your support and advocacy for AVM awareness.

This is amazing! My daughter suffered a brain AVM rupture June 23, 2020. We had never even heard of an AVM before that day❤

My husband survived an AVM in 1976 at age 18. It was truly a miracle.

Thank you Governor Tate Reeves for this recognition and awareness move.Our son, Eric Benjamin "Ben" Boren II, died of an undiagnosed AVM of the brain. It was May 29, 2015. He was 14 years old. We would not know his cause of death for six months, when his autopsy results and death certificate were returned from Le Bonheur hospital and the state of Tennessee. It was a shock, because he had two previous brain scans. Ben was a great young man and loved and was loved by all. To honor his love for others, we allowed him to become an organ donor. Ben saved the lives of 3 desperate people. We are thankful that a part of him lives on.

Tate when were treasurer of Mississippi , you along with other white Bond Commissioners refused to allow a vote on Bonds for the City of Jackson. These racist obstruction by white Republicans is a reflection of how Godless white politicians misuse power. God is still in control ,your power will end and you will always be remembered as another Mississippi Governor who was corrupt. Your children will learn that their daddy was corrupt and they will be ashamed. Your grandchildren will know that you continued the white racism.

"Too few that suffer from it are diagnosed." How do you know that, Tater?

Didn't you cut funding for the health department? Also, Brett Farve news you are refusing to acknowledge.

Jessica Cooper Boren

expand for the poor kids and old disabled and veterans

Tate Reeves is a racist who has purposely withheld funds for the capitol city Jackson's water system and given it to white-majority suburbs where it wasn't needed. The proof is there and he is going to be held accountable by the federal government and lawsuits.

Brett Favre gone steal some .

Denying Jackson bond money when they needed most.

You need to inform mississippians on the welfare scandle let us know what you as governor is doing to prosecute all that's involved...but are you involved?

Brett Lorenzo Favre the Welfare Queen Republicans warned us about. You covered his TRACKS. Your just as guilty.

My cousin has the Kiara malfunction Kristin Jergins Myers

Where’s the welfare money, Tator Tot?

It’s also Domestic Violence Awareness Month. And everyone sees pink in October and immediately knows. I don’t see much red in February for Heart Awareness Month though. 80% of heart disease (which leads to stroke and heart attacks) is preventable by lifestyle (exercise and diet) yet MS leads in obesity.

One Term Two Faced Tater Tot.

Jessica McFall

Expand medicaid, asshole.

Thank You Governor Reeves for bringing AVM to our attention.

Alderman Jane arteriovenous malformation, it's right there in the post.

Caption lacks info…..just looks like a photo op to me……what’s AVM? Do you think the majority of your constituent base knows what the acronym AVM means?

I have an idea about where to get money for a baseball stadium. Just don’t let the media know.

You gonna "help" them build a volleyball court too?

Awesome Governor of Great State of Mississippi 🇺🇸💪🏼‼️ Thanks for being with our boys ‼️

I hope to see you pose with the all-white tennis and golf teams, too.

Congratulations 🎊 👏 💐 Now, we Mississippians could really use a stimulus check by Christmas! Especially, since we're one of the few states that hasn't given one out. Please!..

Congratulations to these exceptional young men,coaches,and parents. Hard WORK pays. Enjoy the moment. RRR#1

All you who are offended by my post. I never meant to stir up this storm. You each have your right to your opinion and to state them. I, also, have the right to state mine, which is to give this team, their coaches and players, accolades for a job hard fought and well done. Does it matter what their politics are? Heck NO. They are a TEAM and fought and won. No politics, no race, no controversy. Some of them can’t even vote yet. They’re super proud of what they’ve done. Just OUR state team that deserves our congratulations. Let’s allow that to them.

Keep them baseball natties in Mississippi!


Mississippi = Baseball champs!




Congratulations Pearl River Community College!!!

What a great picture! Congratulations to all🎈🎈🎈

Congratulations 👏👏

Congratulations 🎉🎉🎉

Congratulations!!! 🎉

Happy National Daughters Day to our three girls!

We’re truly blessed by each of you and I’m so proud of the young ladies you’ve become.

The time goes by too quickly and y’all have grown up too fast!

Drug smugglers have no limits. They'll do anything to make a buck - including smuggling fentanyl in stuffed animals. Imagine what could've happened if a child got ahold of it.

Thankfully, that won't happen, because our law enforcement deployment took it off our streets.

First Lady of Mississippi, Elee Williams Reeves, grew up in Tylertown where her parents emphasized the importance of education and giving back to the community.
