Please see statement from Mayor Pro Tem George Turner, and Councilmembers Jimmy Clanton, Rob Turner, Jazzmin Cobble, and Tammy Grimes re federal charges filed against Mayor Lary.
Obviously, this is a solemn time in Stonecrest’s history, as Mayor Lary is our first Mayor. We wish him and his family the best as they face these challenges. At the same time, the City of Stonecrest is committed to maintaining integrity in government and we fully support the U.S. Attorney’s efforts to ensure that justice is carried out.
Because Stonecrest adopted a Council-Manager form of government earlier this year, the Mayor’s role is largely ceremonial. Therefore, we anticipate that this development will cause minimal disruption to city operations. We assure our residents that we will continue to serve them to the best of our abilities. We look forward to adopting our FY2022 budget and transitioning to a fully staffed city to further our focus on what is best for our residents.
