I think that Larry Langford was a good mayor of Birmingham. He did things that most mayors wouldn't do, and I think that if he wasn't in jail we would still have him. He could do more to make Birmingham better than what we have. I love Larry Langford.

Instead of emphasizing honesty and integrity as traits needed for our new mayor, the editorial seemed to praise Langford for his visions etc..  It seems rather weak to make favorable comments about a mayor who could get up to 800 years in prison for stealing millions from the taxpayers.

...I personally know Larry...we graduated from high school together. He has always been a very nice, pleasant person and an honest person. I believe Larry was set up to look like a thief... I don't believe the rules were that clear about receiving gifts. I don't see why is Larry is sitting in jail. I do not understand it.
