Congressman Thompson To Serve As Honorary Show Chairman



United States Congressman Bennie Thompson will serve as honorary Show Chairman for the upcoming Mississippi Charity Horse Show in Jackson, Miss.  Congressman Thompson serves the 2nd Congressional District of Mississippi which includes Jackson.  The Mississippi Charity Horse Show will be held March 29-31, 2012 at the Kirk Fordice Equine Center on the Mississippi State Fairgrounds.

The Mississippi Charity Horse Show has played a vital role in the Jackson community and donated $35,000 last year to the Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital.  Congressman Thompson will be in attendance on Friday night this year and will meet with many of the local children from the hospital as well as the Walking Horse trainers, owners and exhibitors that make the fundraising initiative so successful.

“We are honored and privileged to have Congressman Thompson a part of our show,” said Robert Taylor.  “Congressman Thompson has been a loyal representative of our community and has supported the efforts of the Mississippi Charity in the past and we are thrilled he will be able to attend our show this year,” concluded Taylor.

Thompson has over 43 years of public service and has been a United States Congressman from the 2nd District since 1993, currently serving his ninth term.  Thompson has served three terms as Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee and was the first democrat to serve as chairman.
