Firefighters local to announce mayoral pick

Mobile Firefighters Local 1349 will announce its endorsement in the mayor's election at a press conference Tuesday.

The group interviewed all four candidates -- County Commissioner Sam Jones, former City Councilwoman Bess Rich, ex-state Sen. Ann Bedsole and City Councilman John Peavy -- and chose one "after careful deliberation," according to local 1349 president John Wiggins.

Ms. Rich, who has won the local's favor in the past, is considered the frontrunner to again receive the firefighters' backing.

The press conference will be held at 2 p.m. at the Mobile Firefighters Association headquarters at 4805 Halls Mill Road.
