Moak, Clark, and Presley to speak at Ole Miss Wednesday

The Overby Center for Southern Journalism and Politics at Ole Miss is hosting Northern District Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley (D), Rep. Bobby Moak (D - Bogue Chitto), and Rep. Bryant Clark (D - Pickens) tomorrow at 11 a.m.  They will be discussing working in politics as members of the minority party in their respective bodies.  Charlie Mitchell will moderate.

I anticipate that this will be an interesting discussion.  Clark, Moak, and Presley are all unapologetic Democrats and warriors for the middle class.  Being in the leadership of the minority party in the House and the PSC isn't as easy as being in the leadership of the majority party, but all three men have taken to their task with aplomb.

The Overby Center is named for Charles L. Overby, editor of the Daily Mississippian (the student newspaper at Ole Miss) from 1967-68.  Overby is currently the CEO of the Newseum in Washington, D.C.
