Louisville Mayor Will Hill Announces Bid for Reelection

Press Release from current Mayor Will Hill on his bid for reelection.

I am thankful for the opportunity to have served as Mayor of the City of Louisville over the past eight years. We have accomplished a great deal in recent years, however it is with much confidence I proclaim, "we are just getting started". Rather than being defined by historical events, it is my hope we are making history. We have many opportunities to continue making Louisville a better place to live, work, and play; and it is for this reason I announce my reelection bid for Mayor of the City of Louisville, Mississippi. Many projects are underway in the life of our City, some of which are of historical magnitude. The most difficult aspects of theses projects are finance and patience, both of which are required. Be assured the City is following the steps for reimbursements, furthermore all projects must be approved and self funded before eligible for reimbursement. We strive to make the most of all opportunities and plan for the next five, ten, and twenty-five years while continuing to provide the essential services of the City of Louisville today. It has been one of the most challenging,educational, and rewarding experiences of my life and I humbly announce to the citizens of Louisville, "I want to finish what we have started." Again, thank you for the opportunity to serve our hometown.
