Candidates Disagree Over Spending Priorities

Posted: Updated:

Five Issues - Five Days

When it comes to city infrastructure and services, Mobile Mayor Sam Jones says his administration has been proactive when it comes to making sure the city's infrastructure and services remain steady.

Jones says the city spent $100m over the past six years improving streets, drainage and bridges; and $3.6m improving and building city parks.

Sandy Stimpson agrees the infrastructure and services are important, but does not believe it has been a priority.  He believes money that should go toward road improvements, for example, is actually being used for something else.  But he said he does not know what that might be.

Jones says he made infrastructure and city services a priority because new businesses won't look at a city that can't maintain those things.

Stimpson believes if those things were more of a priority more people would live in the city, generating more tax revenue and supporting businesses.
