Governor Reeves Announces New Interim Director of MDA
Last Friday, Governor Reeves announced that John Rounsaville would take the helm at the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) as Interim Director. This announcement comes on the heels of the legislature’s passage of SB 2772, which would sets up a $300 million grant program, administered by MDA, for small business impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
Rounsaville has previously worked for Congressman Chip Pickering and Governor Haley Barbour. Most recently, Rounsaville has been serving as the State Director for USDA Rural Development, appointed to that position by President Trump.
