TUPELO, MISS. – Mayor Jason Shelton has been named one of the top 50 most influential elected or appointed officials in the state.

The announcement was released on Tuesday by the MSTop 50. A reception for the winners is scheduled for October 17 at the Capitol Inn in Jackson.

“I am extremely humbled to be included in the 2017 MSTop50 with so many great leaders,” said Shelton. “Thank you so much for the tremendous honor.”

State Rep. Steve Holland of Lee County will be inducted into the MSTop50 Hall of Fame with former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbor.

Other notables named to the list this year are Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves, State Treasurer Lynn Fitch, House Speaker Philip Gunn, Seccretary of State Delbert Hoseman, and U.S. Rep. Trent Kelly.

Mississippi Top 50 is an annual list of the people who are judged to be the most influential leaders in the state. This bipartisan selection of leaders comes from the ranks of the elected and appointed officials, economic development professionals, business, media and government affairs.
