Haley Barbour, Governor of MS during Hurricane Katrina
AshBritt was the biggest debris removal contractor in Mississippi after Katrina. AshBritt won a competitive contract with the Corps of Engineers to do the Corps’ clean-up in Mississippi, and this turned out to be a great blessing for our state. AshBritt did a tremendous job, subcontracted work to many Mississippi companies and provided jobs to hundreds of our workers. Originally I was skeptical of the Corps bringing in an outside company, but AshBritt proved me wrong, and we will always be grateful for AshBritt in our state.
