nfl jerseys for cheap authentic Algood council candidates interviewed
Five people addressed Algood’s council vying for one of two open council seats at Monday night’s work session.
City Administrator Keith Morrison asked each person to verify that they had lived in the city at least a year. Four of the five also said they’d be willing to serve on any city boards or committees.
Tim McPherson said he’s lived in Algood for about 20 years and thinks there’s a lot of healing that needs to be done and the council should be a part of that. He also believes being busy helps folks heal and there’s plenty to do, from planning Algood’s upcoming bicentennial celebration to working on the new park.
“I think we need to heal this city, and I want to be a part of that,” McPherson said. “The community needs some outreach from the council, and I could help with that.”
Mayor Kirk Dyer said,”It’s been no secret it’s been nothing less than volatile here the last few months. That’s why we’re here, we want to give everyone the opportunity to help.”
Luke Hill said he’s new in town and wants to help out. He and his family moved to Algood from Memphis 18 months ago when he took a job as legal counsel at Cookeville Regional Medical Center. Hill said he helps the CRMC’s board of trustees and has served on boards and commissions at the city and county level in Shelby County.
“I see a need and believe my background could meet that need,” Hill said. “If I can help, I’m happy to do so.”
Shawna Whitefield said she’d lived in Algood all her life. In that time she’s seen growth, and she’s excited about the new park. Whitefield said she’s worked for the town before and while she believes the town is hurting, it’s stable.
“I’m proud of Algood, I’m proud of you all,” Whitefield told the council. “I want to bring love, caring and integrity back to this town.”
Justin Grant said he’s lived in town since he was in the 7th grade. He’s now the pastor at the Church on the Hill. Grant said he believes his skills working with a congregation will help.
“I hope to see Algood do well,” Grant said. “I’d like to help if I can.”
Morrison also read a letter from Milburn Rogers, who couldn’t attend the meeting because of illness. Rogers has served on many committees in Algood, including the Independence Day and Christmas parade committees.
