Enterprise mayor race - Bill Cooper
ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WTVY) --
Enterprise Mayor Bill Cooper moved to Enterprise more than 50 years ago. He's spent 42 of those years in the school system as a band director and then an assistant principal.
For some of that tenure, he's also spent time serving the City of Progress.
"Having served since 1987 on the city Council and 3 1/2 years as mayor gives me the experience to know something about the city government," Mayor Cooper said.
Cooper believes his efforts the last few years will reward the city for many years to come.
"I was in on the group that purchased the land at the time that didn't even know that a veteran's home was in the progress, I was also in the making of finishing the downtown area," he added.
Other accomplishments he noted were the expansion of H S Automotive Alabama and the project on Highway 167, but he's still not done quite yet.
"I have a lot on the table that will move Enterprise forward and continue to make it the City of Progress," Cooper explained.
Many of those ideas on the table are in the process something he's hoping to see through as mayor.
"I would like to make sure that the airport is completed and I would also like to see the resurfacing and paving of our street and we are trying to add on more water towers and more water tanks and as for our employees making sure they are getting taken care of as for the benefits," Cooper finished.
Municipal elections are next Tuesday, August 25.
