Republican gubernatorial candidate Haley Barbour said the concerns he hears from Collinsville residents are the same concerns voters are talking about all over the state.
Barbour, of Yazoo City, was in Collinsville on Friday for a gathering hosted by local residents and the Collinsville Community Development Club.
Education is the main area in which Barbour and many of his supporters said improvements are needed.
