Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs returns to the White House

The city of Vicksburg issued a release Friday afternoon announcing Mayor George Flaggs Jr. at the White House for a discussion in the East Room.

The subject of the meeting is focused on transforming America’s communities with President Trump, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, Senior Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway and other senior Trump Administration officials.

The Friday discussion in the East Room marks Flaggs’ first meeting of 2020 with President Trump at the White House.

“My continued relationship with the White House means more opportunities for the future of Vicksburg,” Flaggs said. “Our residents pay federal taxes and I believe it’s incumbent upon me as mayor to take advantage of every opportunity to attract federal dollars back to Vicksburg’s economy.”
