Testimonials


"In this fast paced world we live in, it’s refreshing to know someone who listens. Greg Haney is one of those who listens! Our family recently had an “issue” in need of an answer....an answer that was slow to come from Jackson, MS. Greg listened intently, then made a phone call. The next morning, Jackson was on my phone with the answer my family needed to hear!

Some politicians are all talk and show, but not Greg Haney. He knows his way around the Capital City, and he works for his folks back here on the Gulf Coast."

- Steve Peterman
Orange Grove Resident &
Regional Manager - Delta World Tire


"As a Conservative who works in education, I am grateful for representatives in our state who actually conduct research and inform themselves on the issues. Not only does Greg Haney do this, but he is the first—and only—state legislator who has actually sought our professional input on hot-button issues as they arise. Too many politicians worry about towing the party line; Greg Haney worries about the issues that directly impact his constituents, enough so that he reaches out to us in person before casting any vote that affects us. Greg is a refreshing change in Mississippi politics, and I am honored to have him as my representative."

- David Allen
Retired Gulfport School Administrator &
Current Catholic School Administrator


"I would like to share an example of how Greg Haney was instrumental in helping me with a student need:

HIPAA prevents me from sharing specifics, but I had a special needs student who needed a very specialized piece of equipment to facilitate the student's ability to function in the school setting. After hitting numerous roadblocks with Medicaid, and having exhausted all of my resources, I reached out to Greg. When he understood the impact, he immediately went to work and, in within a couple of weeks, Medicaid approved the equipment.

I’m so grateful to Greg! This student's ability to function was so improved as a result of his help."

- Peggy Powell, RN
Retired School Nurse


"I have known Greg Haney since 1966. I watched Greg grow up into the fine person he is today. I am proud of the way Greg has served the people in the State and his district for the past 8 years. Greg is honest, straight forward, and caring for the people he represents. We need to keep Greg representing and working for us."

- Robert W. Raybourn
Orange Grove Resident & Raybourn's Hair Center


"During the 8 years Greg has served in the Mississippi House of Representatives, I have found him to be hardworking, honest and a person of integrity. His main goal has always been to represent the best interest of his constituents in his district.

While serving in the capacity of State Representative, Greg has met people from across the country and around the world and has become one of the best ambassadors for Mississippi and Gulfport we have ever had.

We need Greg in Jackson, so I humbly ask for your vote for Greg to send him back for another term. Thank you!"

- State Representative John O. Read
Chairman - House Appropriations Committee


"We need Rep. Greg Haney to be reelected. He is a man of moral conviction whose compass is always pointed to doing what’s right over what is politically expedient! He always votes his conviction and what is in the best interests of his district. Quite frankly, we need more public officials like him!"

- State Representative Hank Zuber
Chairman - Banking and Finance Committee


"Cannot thank you enough for the assist of getting Jackson, MS, to finish and send me the death certificate for my wife, Carrol. They had the file ONE year and TEN months! After calling you, you contacted me and said, 'I have contacted the officials responsible, and you will get the certificate in appx 10 days.' You were correct! I don't know how you did it, but it worked! I'm certain I would not have her death certificate YET without your help! Thanks again!"

- Jim Fletcher
Gulfport Resident


“Greg Haney is a tireless advocate for the people of Gulfport and the Coast. He is engaged and knowledgeable on the issues impacting the Gulf Coast and in my experience he always seeks to do what is right by the people in his district. It is important that we have proven, solid conservatives in the legislature and Greg Haney has a track record of conservative leadership in the legislature.

I look forward to working with and helping Greg as he continues to work hard to make Mississippi, the Gulf Coast, and Gulfport a better place to live, work and raise a family."

- Philip Gunn
Speaker of the House of Representatives


"Representative Haney has been a great partner over the past 8 years in assisting our department with getting unclaimed property back to the rightful owner. He has helped return approximately $500,000 in unclaimed money to his constituents. We greatly appreciate his efforts in working tirelessly to serve his constituents.

Every dollar of unclaimed property we return has the potential to change a life. It can be the difference between a family paying the bills on time or throwing money away on late fees. It can even be the difference between a business expanding or laying off employees. The State is just a custodian for this money and I have been proud to help the people of Harrison County get their fair share."

- Tony Geiger
Director of Unclaimed Property - State Treasurer's Office


"Representative Haney took the time to call and alert my husband and me to the fact that our names were listed on the State Treasurer's unclaimed money fund. We would have never known this if he hadn't brought it to our attention. He even had an employee of the Treasurer's office call us to help with required paperwork. It's great to know our representative is watching out for us!"

- Karen Glass
Orange Grove Resident


"I am thankful to have Greg as my State Representative. I have learned a lot about how Jackson works through our many conversations, and I appreciate that while we agree on a lot of issues that affect our area, he is able and willing to hold a respectful conversation on issues we don't agree on. I know that not everyone will agree 100% on every issue of our lives, but I am glad we can have civil discussions to have him hear my point of view."

- Ted Sheldon
Bayou View Resident


"As a member of the Harrison County School Board, I have seen the dedication that Representative Greg Haney has demonstrated toward public education. He has made himself available to discuss the issues that are important to teachers, administrators and parents. He has also encouraged them to ask questions and give their opinions. In addition, Representative Haney has recognized accomplishments made by our schools and our sports teams. Representative Haney is an outstanding example of a person who wants the best for all the children of Harrison County."

- Bill Bradley
Harrison County School Board


"Representative Greg Haney's contributions to the House Tourism Committee work have been hard to quantify. He exemplifies the essence of the meaning of Mississippi hospitality. As people enter the Capitol or as they walk the halls there, they often run into Rep. Haney and he invariably asks where they are from, how long they plan to be in the state and what they are planning to do while here. He then makes it his business to introduce these visitors to any state elected official he can find.

Representative Haney also serves as Treasurer of the Ms House Conservative Coalition. Together as President of the Coalition we have worked extremely hard on legislation that makes conservatives proud. He is one of the hardest working people at the Capitol and represents Gulfport extremely well."

- Representative Becky Currie
Chairwoman - Tourism Committee


"It has been an honor to have worked with Rep. Greg Haney for the past 8 years and to call him a friend. The legislature is all about relationships and no one works harder than Greg at building those relationships. He has passion for the Coast and Gulfport and he is dedicated to his constituents. He has always been someone you could work with who is fair and honest. Greg takes his work seriously and spends the time necessary to be prepared. The experience he has gained over the last eight years is important and will help him be an even more effective Legislator.

Gulfport needs a Representative like Greg Haney in the Legislature. I would ask you to please support and vote for Greg Haney for the House of Representatives in the August 6th Primary."

- State Representative Manly Barton
Chairman - Local and Private Legislation Committee


"Greg has proven his effectiveness as a leader for the city of Gulfport and the Gulf Coast. He has been a strong voice for issues involving workforce, community colleges, and education. Greg worked with other Representatives to ensure BP funding and provide a voice for the Coast. Greg Haney is a respected and effective leader for his district."

- State Representative Donnie Bell
Chairman - Workforce Development Committee


"Representative Greg Haney is a dedicated and proven voice for sound and conservative policy that will make all Mississippians proud for generations to come. He cautiously considers every measure and vote to be assured in his heart that it is the proper and right thing for all citizens of our great state.

He has been an active and influential member of the Transparency, Accountability, and Efficiency committee due to his thorough vetting and consideration of all presented policy. His enthusiasm and discretion is highly appreciated and respected by the entire committee. He is the kind of person that I would want representing my voice in Jackson!"

- State Representative Jerry R. Turner
Chairman - Transparency, Accountability, and Efficiency Committee

"Greg has been a great addition to the Coast delegation for the past 8 years. He works hard and has been a strong supporter of education and the public school system. I look forward to his re-election and what we will accomplish together for the Coast. His District, the Coast and the State are fortunate to have someone with Greg's ability, morals and ethics."

- State Representative Richard Bennett
Chairman - Education Committee
