Thank you for your positive remarks about Gary Tanner regarding when he was county commissioner. As an educator in south Mobile County I can speak to how he was always supporting schools, including being there to hand out certificates to retiring teachers.
When Bryant High School was opening he provided funding and labor to get the final landscaping done. When Mike Dean came into office that all ended.
Shrimpers in Bayou La Batre said they were also ignored. Jerry Carl is not my commissioner but I don’t want to go through another special election because Margie Wilcox is part of a perceived vendetta.
