Mobile, AlabamaWKRG) — Today is the last regular city council meeting with three longtime members. Next month, four new members or members of the Return Council will be appointed. This is the highest sales in recent memory, with new people playing a leading role in more than half of the council’s seats.
Let’s talk about the going out members. All have very familiar faces. Fred Richardson announced four years ago that this would be his last term at the Mobile City Council. He ran for mayor this year, but was unable to overcome his incumbent Sandy Stimpson. He is currently the longest-serving city council member.
Councilor Levon Manzie, who won the most votes in the August general election, died before the final vote. He served in the council for eight years and was generally considered a peacemaker.
John Williams announced in May that he would not seek re-election to a seat he had held for 15 years. He said he didn’t want to be a lifelong politician.
Beth Rich also announced in May that he would not seek re-election. Rich represented the city’s Sixth District from 1993 to 2001 and is currently serving since 2010.
