New Mississippi Choctaw leader unsure about fate of business

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.
