“Freight rail infrastructure investments support the economic development of Mississippi’s towns and cities more. Shipbuilders in Pascagoula, plastics manufacturers in Hattiesburg, construction materials suppliers in Jackson, and many other Mississippi industries use rail to make their operations more productive and competitive.”

Robbie Brown’s responsibilities for the Mississippi Municipal League include managing the Certified Municipal Officials training and education program, providing members with technical support and information, archiving sample municipal ordinances so that cities and towns may use them to develop their own ordinances, and keeping members informed of grant opportunities.

Originally from Jacksonville, Florida, Brown attended Mississippi College where he received a B.A. in History and an M.S.S. in Political Science. He also received a Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership from the University of Florida. Brown and his wife Adriane, along with their three children, reside in Clinton, Mississippi.
