Mayor stresses safety
Placeholder Image
Alexandria Mayor Bennett Armstrong does not plan to seek reelection but he hopes to leave office knowing the town’s citizens are a little safer than when he first took office. “I’d like to go out of office knowing there is at least a date when things are going to be done,” the mayor said of his hopes that something can be done along Highway 53 to make the area safer. His concern was raised again after a crash in Alexandria a couple of weeks ago that left two injured.
