Stimpson’s First City Council Meeting

Stimpson’s First City Council Meeting

Posted: Updated:
Mobile, AL -

The first thing you'll notice about the new mayor is how he sits at the table.  He sits on the end--Stimpson says it sends the wrong message to have your back turned to the people.

So if I'm making remarks I can be looking at the council and the citizens and the same time and I think that's just the way it should be,” says Sandy Stimpson.  He's not getting everything he wants right away. 

The city council delayed a vote on his pick for a finance director Paul Wesch.  Council members asked for the delay because they wanted more information on the picks

“We want to make certain that we have all the pertinent information for these very important positions with the infancy of this administration we haven't received that yet,” says new council member Levon Manzie.  You could also call Stimpson the quiet mayor.  For the second day in a row he had nothing to say when called on for the regular comments from the mayor.

“I think actions speak louder than words.  That's like the event last Saturday, we can talk about one mobile, but everyone doing something sends a huge message,” says Stimpson.
