Mayor Willis is supporting four of the incumbents who have all expressed support for the rise in the garbage bill. Those are Jay Hollowell, Joe St. Columbia, Eddie Clark, and Daniel Strickland. Five incumbents have opposed the fee increase and Willis has expressed support for their opponents. Those challengers that are reportedly receiving support from Willis are: Cedric Pride, Gabe Ferebee, Tommie Hunt, Joe Grubbs, Vivian Holder, and Eddie Lee.
With just over three weeks until the election, it will be interesting to see if the general public sends at least five alderman to the council who support Willis and the fee increase.
In addition to Franklin and Jarrett, incumbents Monica Cartwright-Davis, Don Etherly, and Larry Brown have expressed opposition to the $15 fee hike proposed by the Mayor.
