Farewell letter to the City of Montgomery from Congressman Bobby Bright

MONTGOMERY, AL., (WSFA) -- Congressman Bobby Bright has issued a farewell letter to the citizens of Montgomery. Here is a copy of the former mayor's letter.

Dear Citizens of Montgomery:

Serving you, as the mayor of our great City, has been a pleasure and an honor that I will cherish for the rest of my life. In 1999, we set goals of moving Montgomery forward and bringing her citizens closer. I am proud that by working together, our efforts were met with success.

I hope you feel Montgomery is better off than it was nine years ago. The revitalization of our downtown is ongoing; attracting new investment to the heart of our City. Biscuits baseball, amphitheater concerts, strolls on the river walk and recreational activities at Gateway Park are contributing to our quality of life. Hyundai and its suppliers, a growing tourism industry and expanded, reliable mass transit are strengthening our economy. Our multi-million dollar appropriation to the Montgomery Public Schools is an investment in our children and in our future.

I am grateful for the many dedicated City employees who strive everyday to make Montgomery a better place to live and work. It has been an honor to work alongside such committed public servants.

I am also thankful to the many citizens groups who partnered with our City departments on countless projects to benefit Montgomery.

Thank you for your support and for allowing me to serve as your Mayor for the past nine years. As I prepare to enter the U. S. House of Representatives, please know my goals are to keep Montgomery, the river region and the entire second district strong and growing.

I am indebted to you for your friendship, your prayers, and all you have done to help me as I have served. May God bless you and your families in the New Year; and may God bless the City of Montgomery.

Sincerely,

Mayor Bobby Bright
