Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves

Thank you for visiting my website.

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.

For All Mississippi

Many Mississippians faced severe storms last night.

Thank you to those across the nation who prayed for our state. Thank you to our first responders for doing what you always do - putting yourselves in harm’s way to keep others safe.

Initial reports indicate trees down, housing damage, a road washout, and a fire department destroyed in Northeast/East Mississippi. Approximately 2,800 Mississippians are without power, down from nearly 12,900. I thank God that we have not received, as of now, any reports of lives lost.

The state will continue to work with our local emergency managers to assess damage and ensure Mississippians have the resources they need to recover.

If your home was damaged as a result of the storm, please report it to MEMA here:

It is excellent news for anyone who cares about the people of Jackson that the Mayor will no longer be overseeing the city’s water system. It is now out of the city’s control, and will be overseen by a federal court.

It has been a chaotic series of months, while the state has assumed their responsibility. The people on the ground who rushed to help were floored by the negligence. They did heroic work to fix so many broken things and support the frontline city workers who had been abandoned. We committed millions of dollars from taxpayers across Mississippi to solve this crisis of incompetence.

In less than 72 hours after the emergency was declared, water pressure was returned to the city. Days later, the boil water alert was lifted. We distributed millions of dollars in water via the National Guard to ensure people could flush their toilets and drink safe water.

You may remember that the Mayor injected further chaos into the story by undermining the EPA’s request for the state to find a maintenance contract for the city. He insisted that he must direct the payments.

Since that stunt and our subsequent decision to set an end date for our running of their system, the federal government accelerated their efforts to put someone competent in charge. Their order was filed and made public today. The system should be out of city politician hands very soon.

The state of emergency came to an end last week, but I have authorized MEMA to commit another $240,000 from the state’s Disaster Mitigation Fund for maintenance as a bridge between today and the new leadership. That should help close out this chapter without further chaos.

More work to do, but it is very promising that this problem is now going to be solved outside of the city’s backrooms. I’m very proud of what everyone has done to come together and fix a longstanding issue and ensure that chaos and corruption cannot keep the people of Jackson from accessing clean water.

While I’m happy there will be new oversight over the water woes in Jackson, I find state leaders throwing other leaders under the bus so unprofessional. That’s politics, not leadership. Grow up!

This may have been an emergency but it was a man made emergency and the state funds should be reimbursed.

When the local and state government cannot get along, the Federal government has too become the Adult in the room.

Great leadership on this, Governor!! Thank you!

Of that mayor can’t handle a water system how can it handle its citizens and the rest of the city? Jackson’s government structure is a joke.

Great news and I don't even live in Jackson! I don't even live in Mississippi but that situation has been so horrendous for a city in the United States of America. This is not supposed to be a third world country.👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

Can’t just say corruption is going on with the city of Jackson only because there is also corruption on the state level as well! That corruption also made national news!

Great job. Now do a full scale audit and find the missing money.

Well governor we may not agree on everything politically but you are spot on with this! Congratulations!!

As a Jackson citizen, I thank you Governor!

Yay! Best news of the day!

The city leaders need to be investigated Tate!!

Like the state any better. Something less for the Mayor to worry about.

Take over all of Jackson please sir . They’ve proven to not be able to do anything

The people that we assisted have us Hugs and thanked us everyday. It was a honor to serve and assist in helping Jackson residents during that time!

Great job !! Keep up the great work

Thank you for your leadership in resolving the water issues in Jackson. Great job!

Why are my state tax dollars going to support a city water system maintenance issue?? Tate. Stop spending my tax dollars inappropriately.

Yes it is about time people of Jackson vote this 🤡 out of vote he needs to Still down people like this don’t even need to be in office the way he done the people of Jackson

Now if we could just get PRVWSD rip off water bills out of the hands of politicians. $185-$225 a month for water/sewer is a rip off

Where did the $67m from the lawsuit against siemens go?...I bet mumbos ira ballooned...

Why not turn Shad loose on the City of Jackson

Wonderful for Jackson citizen!

Good work Governor. I wouldn’t have done it. Jackson was getting what they voted for. Juck Fackson

And what other cities are doing the same thing?

Mississippi, we have an updated risk map for today’s weather. We could see severe storms, hail, damaging wind, and even tornadoes.

Please stay off the roads if possible, have a safe location ready, and stay alert for warnings!
