“Thank you, Selma, for the opportunity to serve as your mayor over the past 8 years. We have endured some difficult times; but through it all, “Still we Rise!”

After the election, I spent time with family, supporters, and friends. So many people did so much over the years and during the election process. To each, I say, “thank you.”

After addressing supporters, I went to Mr. Evans at the St. James Hotel and congratulated him. Again, congratulation goes out to Mr. Evans and all successful candidates. For the benefit of our community and people, I pray for your success.

Now, it is time to transition. I will quietly move aside.

For all done, ‘To God be the Glory.'”
