The day after being elected Sandy Stimpson spent his morning back at work. We caught up with the mayor elect at gulf scotch lumber.
He says he did celebrate a little bit last night, but is now thinking about his new job, especially with the resignation of several top city officials, including police chief Michael T. Williams.
“The situation with the police chief obviously, I would have gone in and assessed that situation, but now with him resigned I don't have to spend the time doing that. You have to do an assessment but you don't have to assess who is currently in charge. But we will be having to do a lot of that in different areas," said Stimpson.
For the ones who are stick around Stimpson is trying to set up meetings.
“We have got to start the process at some point and time. And so I think it will just unfold it is difficult to predict that as we sit here today. Obviously they are interested in who their new mayor is. I am interested in making sure that we have the right people at the right spots so we will work our way through it,” said Stimpson.
Stimpson takes over the mayor’s office on November fourth.
