Phenix City Mayor Eddie Lowe seeks transparency, community feedback | News
PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM)- It's been a month since Phenix City swore in their first African American mayor, Eddie Lowe.
He spent the day in a city council meeting, where he says that transparency and feedback from the community is what is most important to him.
He told News Leader 9 one of the biggest issues he faces is that everyone is still green on the council, and is still learning. Despite only being mayor for a month, Lowe said he has a great team and they work well together.
