Gov.-elect Haley Barbour doesn't take office until Jan. 13, but he is already trying to make good on a campaign promise.

Barbour on Wednesday announced details of a job creation summit in Jackson Dec. 15-16.

White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card and Federal Express CEO Fred Smith, a Marks native, are the keynote speakers for the summit, which will bring together business, higher education and political leaders to develop plans to spark Mississippi's economy.

How to attract jobs to MS (in this order):

1) stop lawsuit abuse
2) cut taxes and runaway legislative spending
3) fight crime in the larger cities and towns
4) improve education
