Opp Mayor

A newly elected official in the Wiregrass is making good on a campaign promise.

Monday Opp Mayor H. D. Edgar and a local delegation will leave for Seoul, South Korea.

The purpose is to land an automotive supplier for central Covington County.

Mayor Edgar says he'll try and establish a rapport with a company that has expressed an interest in Opp.

The corporation would help supply parts to the Hyundai Plant which is under construction in Montgomery.

As a self-made millionaire in the trucking industry, the new mayor is picking-up all the trip expenses.

Mayor Edgar says his first priority is to give folks in his town the opportunity to earn a decent wage.
