She says her passion for serving people is what’s motivating her to run for this new role.
“We started having issues with our Utility Commission that I wasn’t pleased with,” Mayor Williams said. “I felt like the people were not served well and would not be served well without some help, so I decided to make that run.”
Mayor Williams says the election for both the open mayoral seat and the Utility Commission is on November 2. Her term is officially up December 31.
