DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Mayor Mark Saliba announced in front of the Joseph Statue that he’s ready to continue leading the city into the future.
In his announcement Monday morning, the mayor listed various projects around the city as reasons he wants Dothan voters to give him another four years.
“We have a lot of capital projects, a lot of capital projects that are either about to start or already have started,” Dothan Mayor Mark Saliba said. “So I want to be a part of finishing those projects up with this commission, with the next commission that’s coming into place.”
Saliba said the city has been averaging two to three percent in population growth and it’s reflected in all the different road and infrastructure projects throughout the city and county.
The mayor noted a recent study done by the University of Alabama that suggests there is even more growth expected for the area.
“It’s so important to make sure that our infrastructure is taken care of,” Saliba said. “This is a business, the City of Dothan is a business, and that’s what it’s all about, is providing services for our citizens.”
It’s not only those projects mayor Saliba is excited about, he said it’s the citizens he enjoys working with every day, and come August 3, it’ll be up to those voters on whether he keeps his job as Dothan mayor.
“My favorite thing about being the mayor of this great city is working with the people I love and that I do know that are coming to us that are in need,” Saliba said. “There is a need of some kind, and it’s very important to them when they call and when they reach out to us. I love all the segments of our community.”
