Inaugural Pledge to the Citizens of Natchez

July 1, 2016 marks the beginning of a new Natchez. Transparency, inclusion, and accountability will be the hallmarks of our new administration.

We will not be divided by race, but instead we will be united by our commitment to what is best for all of Natchez. We will partner with the most capable and qualified people to attract business and grow this city.

Together we will build a vital, productive, and beautiful Natchez with a diversified economy, quality education, and choice recreation. We will build a city in which our children can find good jobs as adults and raise their own families. We will build a city that all of us will be proud to call home.

Thank you for entrusting me with the future of our beloved city. Please join me on this journey.

Mayor Darryl V. Grennell
