Hightower: I'm Not Trying To Be Mayor, I Am The Mayor

After two attendees were asked to leave, and while three city commissioners got up to walk out, Benton Harbor Mayor James Hightower had a message for residents at Monday's commission meeting.



A number of complaints about city services, some of which directed at Mayor Hightower and the City Manager, were shared by residents during the public comment portion of the meeting.



Hightower says a list of directors needs to be created for citzens in need of help. Until then...



In a message to other board members Hightower says all commissioners hold a responsibility to serve city residents.



He says it's not the Mayor's responsibility to do everything. Three commissioners; Mary Alice Adams, Juanita Henry, and Trenton Bowens walked out as Hightower was speaking.
