9/7/12 WTVM EDITORIAL: Phenix City's first black Mayor Eddie Lowe


After winning a substantial two-thirds of the votes, Eddie Lowe will become Phenix City's next mayor come November. "Mayor Lowe", as he will soon be called, prefers to downplay the fact that he will become the city's first african-american mayor in his hometown.

He's much prefers to be known as the "unifier", The guy who will bring together north and south in the city, and someone who will make a big difference for all residents.  

We hope and believe this will be a bright step for Phenix City, ensuring a smooth transition. Eddie is the man many have known for his success on the football field.

It was mayor-elect Lowe who was a star linebacker on Central High's football team as well as one of the captains on Bear Bryant's last football team in 1982.

He is also known for his success in business and great involvement in his community. We believe Mayor Lowe will be a successful unifier helping to bring Phenix City into the 21st century with more progressive thinking and unifying attitude.
