  • Charles Pittman is a former Mississippi State Senator (1980–1984) from Grenada, Mississippi. Since January, 2004, Pittman has been a Constituent Services/Special Project Consultant on Governor Haley Barbour's staff. In 2003, Pittman served as the statewide sign coordinator for the Barbour campaign. In 2002, he was a campaign staff member for Congressman Chip Pickering. In 1982, Pittman ran unsuccessfully in the Democratic primary against Senator John C. Stennis. Because of the 1982 Stennis Race, Pittman is listed in Forrest Lamar Cooper's book, "Mississippi Trivia," as the Mississippian having received the most votes ever in any Democratic primary campaign against Stennis, receiving 33,651 votes. Stennis later defeated Barbour in the 1982 general election. In 1983, Pittman was edged out in a crowded Democratic primary for Mississippi Secretary of State. Dick Molpus was ultimately elected Secretary of State where he served for 12 years. Known as a Mississippi political "Idea Man," in 1999 Pittman penned the now famous Mississippi political slogan, "Me and My Truck Are For Amy Tuck" which caught on with the Truck folks. This slogan ensured Tuck the sufficient number of "Good Ole Boy" votes she needed to be elected Lt. Governor. Pittman is best known as one of the Original Mississippi Singing Senators and still performs at various political functions. In 1997, Pittman was awarded the Mississippi Senate Distinguished Service Award for Public Service, selected by and from over 200 current and former living members of the Mississippi State Senate. Pittman received his undergraduate degree from Delta State University, where he was a member of Pi Kappa Alpha. (en)
