Finding Out If Mobile Is Really A Miserable Place

MOBILE, Alabama -

It's how we do it here in Mobile. True southern hospitality at it's finest.

"So far my impression having only been here for 2 minutes is that it's a friendly and loving place," said reporter Julie Zeveloff, who's visiting Mobile on a 2-day stay.

Mayoral hopeful Sandy Stimpson invited the reporter to come see what the Port City has to offer when he posted a YouTube video. This comes after she wrote a story ranking Mobile as the 3rd most miserable city in the country.

"Gallup, which is a consulting company, puts out statistics annually on health and wellness looking at a variety of different factors including physical health access to basic necessities," said Zeveloff.

"I certainly don't think it's that miserable. I'm kind of reminded as it's ok for me to talk about my children but don't you talk about my children and so when people talk about our city you need to stand up and defend it," said Stimpson.

For the next couple of days Stimpson plans to defend Mobile and it's tarnished image. He's hoping Julie will feel the same way after she gets a chance to see what the City is all about.

"I'm not covering politics, I'm going to be writing the story as someone who's been taken here to try and be persuaded that it's not a miserable place," said Zeveloff.
