The past few days have been exciting for our city as we have hosted the National NAACP Convention. We are so proud of all of the work our local NAACP branch has put into making this convention a success. I can't help but think of how proud Mrs. Minnie Hill would be if she were still here with us. She put her heart and soul into her work with the NAACP and she led the effort in bringing the convention to our city. She is deeply missed by all who knew her, but her legacy will live on forever.
City Council is still on recess and our regular meetings will resume in August. Both of our field offices remain open Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm. We are glad to serve you.
Councilman William 'Cruz' Shaw
