Mayor's Moment: A City update from Mayor Edd Akers

Mayor Moment

Dear Branson Community,

I want to congratulate the following winners of our local election this week:

Ward 1 Alderman - Clay Cooper will replace Bob Simmons.

Ward 2 Alderman - Cody Fenton will replace Larry Milton.

Ward 3 Alderman - Ruth Denham will replace Julia King.

Mayor - Larry Milton will replace me as your new Mayor. 

Your newly elected officials will be sworn in at the April 13 Board of Aldermen meeting at City Hall.

For those leaving office, I want to thank you for your service to our great city and wish you luck in your future endeavors.  I also want to congratulate the citizens of Branson for saying "yes" twice to renew the Tourism Tax which will continue to allow the Tourists to help us pay for the city infrastructure.

As this is my last Mayor's Moment, I want to thank you for honoring me with the duty of being your Mayor for the last two years.  I wish Mayor-Elect Milton success in his new role in leading our great city into the future.

Thank you to those who continue to pray for our city, especially our newly elected officials. Please stay positive and be thankful for living in the best city in America. 

Thank you for letting me serve you,

Mayor Edd Akers
