Mississippi State NewsThe Associated Press

WINONA, Miss. (AP) — Three north Mississippi counties have joined forces in what leaders are calling “The Partnership.”

WTVA TV reports county supervisors from Choctaw, Montgomery, and Webster met in Winona Wednesday to sign a deal that will bind the three into a regional economic organization.

Leaders are hoping the partnership will have the kind of economic success that north Mississippi has seen lately.

Officials say a similar alliance with Pontotoc, Union, and Lee Counties landed Toyota in Blue Springs.
