Lucien Smith, chief of staff for Gov. Phil Bryant, spoke at the West Point Rotary Club’s meeting Thursday at the Ritz.
Smith is a member of the Downtown Jackson Rotary and said it’s great to be able to speak at Rotary meetings because his job often keeps him from attending his own club’s meetings.
Smith, who has family in West Point and Starkville, said he jumps at any chance to visit the Golden Triangle. He spoke on his time as Bryant’s chief of staff, and the improvements he feels Bryant has made in his time as governor.
