Tuesday Morning Liberal Democrat Alert: Deborah Dawkins

Mississippi Republican Party Tuesday Morning
Liberal Democrat Alert

It’s Tuesday morning, and that means it’s time for our weekly Liberal Democrat Alert.

This week’s feature is on Senator Deborah Dawkins of Senate District 48 and a return visit from her neighbor just to the west, Representative Dirk Dedeaux of House District 93. Deborah Dawkins was elected to the Senate in 1999. Portions of Harrison County are represented in Jackson by Senate District 48.

As you remember from last week, Dirk Dedeaux was elected to the House in 1995 at just 23 years of age. Currently, portions of Hancock, Pearl River, Harrison, Stone, Forrest, and Lamar counties are represented in Jackson by House District 93.

Last Thursday, the Mississippi Auditor’s office released totals for how much our legislators were paid for salaries and expenses during the 2011 legislative session. The results were shocking to say the least.

Since her last election in November 2007, Deborah Dawkins has taken in just shy of $190,000 in taxpayer dollars for her “part-time” job as a State Senator.

But if you thought that was bad, check out her neighbor Dirk Dedeaux. We already know from last week that Dirk Dedeaux wanted to spend your tax dollars to pay student loan bills for social workers, but since his last election in 2007, Dedeaux took in over $208,000 in taxpayer dollars for his “part-time” job as a State Representative.

Help us win Senate District 48 and House District 93 with a small but generous contribution of just $10.00 today.

If you or someone you know lives in Senate District 48 or House District 93, ask Deborah Dawkins and Dirk Dedeaux what you got in return for the almost $400,000 in your tax dollars they’ve been paid since 2008.

The answer is: more tax increases and wasteful spending! Let’s make a better choice this November.

You can also help us elect conservatives in Senate District 48 and House District 93 this November by making a donation to the Mississippi Republican Party. We need your support to elect a Republican majority on November 8 and a Republican Speaker of the House next January.
