COLUMBUS, Ga. – The Columbus mayor is prepping for her 2016 “State of the City” address that will happen Tuesday morning and last into the afternoon.
Mayor Teresa Tomlinson says she will discuss her accomplishments of 2015 and her goals for 2016.
Decreasing homelessness is one of the accomplishments she’ll be touting in today’s address. Last year crime was one of the focal points in Tomlinson’s “State of the City” address.
This year she says crime will only be indirectly addressed as it relates to economic infrastructure issues and poverty issues in the city.
“Where there is very little family fabric left and those individuals are choosing crime over a more productive path. That’s a more broader discussion but it’s one cities are having a lot of progress and that’s the way I will address it instead of talking about a particular incident,” says Tomlinson.
Besides hearing from the mayor on her accomplishments and goals for 2016 there will also be a review of city departmental activities and citizen honors.
