JACKSON — The Mississippi Municipal League (MML) recently honored District 94 Rep. Robert Johnson and District 38 Sen. Calvin Butler for their unwavering support to promote and mandate municipal-friendly legislation at the state Capitol.

Johnson and Butler were two of ten legislators across the state to receive this award. MML represents 291 municipalities across the state that appreciate the zealous efforts these legislators have put forth to ensure the state’s cities and towns have a voice at the Capitol.

“The Mississippi Municipal League would like to recognize (Johnson and Butler) as (two) of its 2014 Legislative Friends of Municipal Government,” MML President Alton Shaw said. “These recipients have selflessly served the cities and towns of Mississippi. They understand that they serve the same constituents for reasons other than personal gain, and they have been more than willing to listen and seek input from the Mississippi Municipal League and its elected membership.”
