List Of Retiring City Officials Grows

List Of Retiring City Officials Grows

Posted: Updated:
Mobile, AL -

The only way you could tell today was different for the police chief was if you looked at his outfit.  Today he was in a suit and tie when he normally wears his dress uniform to meetings.  Chief Micheal T. Williams has talked openly the last few months about retirement but we don't know if he made the decision because of the election or if he planned it this way all along.  Williams dodged cameras and skipped today's council meeting.   Also retiring from the city is chief of staff Al Stokes. 

“I've come back home, I’m going to stay at home and I’m happy I’m  going to look forward to helping whoever it is that comes in after  the mayor,” says Stokes.  Finance director Barbara Malkove is hanging up her calculator and retiring.  We don't know about city attorney Larry Wettermark.  He would only say he serves at the pleasure of the mayor.

“I am going to reach out to [Stimpson] and help him to help move Mobile forward,” says Wettermark.  Current mayor Sam Jones wasn't sure how many people will leave by November. 

“I don't know, I can't tell you what Sandy Stimpson's going to do,  you'll have to ask him about that,” says Jones.  One man who's confident he still has a job is Mobile Fire Rescue Chief Stephen Dean

“I still have a lot to offer I've been here 39 years and I'm planning on being here,” says Dean.
