MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Mobile Mayor-Elect Sandy Stimpson has been working to fill out his staff.
Stimpson's campaign spokeswoman, Candace Cooksey, said Monday, Sept. 16, the Mayor-Elect has not picked a new chief of staff yet, but an announcement could be coming this week.
The chief of staff would serve as Stimpson's top adviser starting November 4 when the new mayor is sworn into office.
Al Stokes is the chief of staff for Mayor Sam Jones, and also served as chief of staff for former Mayor Mike Dow.
Stokes said late last month he did not plan to continue with the Stimpson administration and will retire November 4.
Mobile Police Chief Micheal T. Williams also announced earlier he planned to step down.
There is no word on when Stimpson will appoint a new police chief, but he had said the chief's position will be handled by the city's assistant police chiefs while the search is going on.
Stimpson won the election on August 27, defeating Jones and winning 53 and a half percent of the vote.
