MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Mayor-elect Sandy Stimpson has been hard at work with his One Mobile Transition Team before he officially takes office November 4.
The transition team met as a whole on Tuesday, October 15 and plans to meet again October 30 to update respective committees within the group.
Stimpson’s team, which include Joe Bullard and Michael Pierce as co-chairs, have been meeting regularly to prepare Stimpson for the challenges ahead.
In a memo sent to team members, officials wrote the transition goals are:
- To learn about City Hall’s current structure.
- Identify inefficiencies, solutions, mechanisms for greater accountability, transparency, and policy priorities.
- Communicate with the citizens of Mobile.
Stimpson has yet to announce a new Chief of Police and expects to have a decision soon.
An open ‘media roundtable’ is scheduled with the Mayor-elect for Monday, October 21 to answer questions about the transition process and policies to be put in place.
