Abbeville, AL - Abbeville's new mayor is officially on the job.

Jim Giganti was sworn in Monday, and he's no stranger to city hall.

He formerly served as the Abbeville city clerk for 28 years.

Giganti says his main priority is job creation.

In the last census Abbeville lost 300 residents.

"We don't want to stay in that losing people every ten years. You know, watching those census numbers go down. I know everybody preaches jobs, jobs, jobs, but we just need something to have our small beautiful little city moving forward," said Giganti.

He also plans to look at the fiscal situation of the city.
