The embedded audio clips were recorded during the regular City Council meeting on May 27, 2014. The appointment of former mayor Sam Jones to the board of commissioners of the Mobile Area Water and Sewer Service failed, for a second time, by a vote of three for the appointment (Richardson, Manzie, Small) and four against the appointment (Williams, Rich, Gregory, Daves). These clips are published in the order in which the council members spoke and exclude any rebuttal. The vote is at the end of Council President Gina Gregory’s comments.
