Have you ever thought of running for a political office?

Jamie ran a landscaping business in high school before he went on to law school and then ran for political office.

OUTLOOK '07: Franks has his eyes on a higher office (http://www.djournal.com/pages/story.asp?ID=224600&pub=1&div=News) - Jamie Franks steps confidently into the well of the Mississippi House and in a booming-clear voice tells why he opposes legislation.

In high school, Franks started a yard/landscaping business that turned into a successful operation. He worked his way through college, continued the business after being elected to the House then completed law school at Mississippi College.

After becoming an attorney, he entered law practice with one of his political mentors, Bill Wheeler, who held the House seat Franks occupies.
