The Home Builders Association of Mississippi (HBAM) has endorsed Charlie Hoots in his bid for the Mississippi House of Representatives (District 20).
Pat Nelson, Executive Vice President of the state Home Builders Association, traveled to Southaven this week to officially make the endorsement.
“Charlie has always supported builders in Mississippi, and we are proud to support him,” Nelson said. “He has a passion for Mississippi and DeSoto County.”
The two-term Southaven alderman is running for the new House District 20 that includes Southaven and Olive Branch in the north part of DeSoto County.
“I am so honored to have their faith and support and I plan on working hard to make sure Mississippi stays a great place to work, live and raise a family,” said Hoots. “One of my main objectives is ensuring DeSoto County receives the adequate and fair share of state funding. This funding will strengthen our quality of life and infrastructure and indirectly benefit the construction industry, an industry that is vital to all local economies.”
The Home Builders Association of Mississippi is a trade organization which assists in “Building a Better Mississippi” by promoting, advancing, and protecting the housing industry.
HBAM is the statewide association affiliated with the local home builder associations and the National Home Association of Home Builders. The Republican Primary election is Aug. 8. Hoots is running in the primary election against Rodney Hall..
