Quentin Whitwell understands the problems our city government faces and his unique experiences will help in crafting solutions that are needed for the City of Jackson. Quentin knows that fraud, waste and abuse are widely seen as the most lethal affect of a bloated budget. He will scrutinize every last item and request evidence of the need for each expenditure. But a shrinking city is a problem in and of itself. Steps must be taken to grow within our borders and attract more businesses and homeowners. Three ways to accomplish these goals are to compete with border cities on tax costs, create tax incentives for redevelopment efforts of neighborhoods and businesses, and work to improve quality of life for our families with parks and recreational activities.
As Chairman of the Mississippi Tort Claims Board, Quentin was appointed by Haley Barbour and worked with the administration and fellow board members to take the Medical Malpractice Availability Plan out of government hands and into the private sector. The Plan had been created during the insurance crisis that doctors suffered during the early 2000’s and after the market stabilized, there was no further need for government intervention. By placing the Plan into the hands of a private company through a stringent bid process, the market had competition and rates stayed low while the government no longer played a role except for oversight purposes.
Quentin Whitwell is an innovator. He has a proven record of success in creating solutions and making significant change in government, the private sector and the legal arena. When he was called upon by Governor Haley Barbour to create a solution to the insurance crisis for physicians in Mississippi, he delivered. Quentin will use the same approach to solving problems with viable solutions in Ward 1 and the City of Jackson.
Honesty. Integrity. A proven record of service.
