New Mississippi Choctaw leader unsure about fate of business
Posted: Thursday, October 6, 2011
The new leader of the
Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians
says she's aware one of the tribe's business will be closing in November, resulting in the loss of 110 jobs.
Applied Geo Technologies
provided notice of closure last month under former chief Beasley Denson. Newly inaugurated chief
Phyliss J. Anderson
said the decision was made by the board of the Chahta Holding Group.
"Under my administration I have pledged to provide not only transparency in our government and stabilization of our finances, but also job opportunities and a more diversified economy," Anderson told The Neshoba Democrat.
Anderson wouldn't say whether she will save the jobs at the facility, a federal government contractor.
