Prichard mayor ‘sets record straight’ regarding the renaming of Meaher Street

Mobile County

UPDATE (2:57 PM) — The Office of the Mayor in Prichard claims to have not been made aware of the street naming event as well as any Juneteenth activities until it was made public through promotions.

Despite having provided the inspiration for many events and following proper policies, procedures, and protocols, the Council never pursued resolutions to begin execution based on these attempts. Certain members of the City Council took it upon themselves to run with the ideas on their own without engaging Mayor or the rest of the City Council. This event was the latest of a series that have failed to follow protocol, follow the law, and be executed in good order.
