Bessemer votes for new leadership

BESSEMER, AL (WBRC) -

By Melanie Posey

BESSEMER, AL (WBRC) - You can't tell just from looking at the streets of Bessemer, but when listening to residents, you can hear the theme of change reverberating.

"It's here," said body shop owner, Henry Varner. Bobbie Wesson agreed. "I like the new change that's coming on," she said. The change was felt the day after Ken Gulley soundly beat incumbent Ed May for the mayor's office.

Gulley said his cities resources and location put Bessemer in a position to make a strong impact. "But we must work together. If we can't, we can't move the city forward," Gulley stressed.

He will have a chance to forget that unity as five new city councilors will join him in leading the city when they take office November first. "We need a council and mayor that will work together. We need people able to be selfless and put themselves last," said new councilor Sherrina V. Rice.

    It feels incredible tonight thanks to a nice break in the muggy levels. Dew points were running about 10 degrees lower than yesterday and you can feel it in the air.
