Tuscaloosa residents got a chance to share the most important meal of the day with their mayor.

Mayor Walt Maddox took questions and listened to his constituents’ concerns over coffee and a light breakfast Monday morning at the Tuscaloosa Gateway Innovation and Discovery Center. Maddox said this monthly event is part of his administration’s ongoing effort to be open about city government.

“You may see dysfunction at the federal and state levels of government, but at the local level, we’re not divided by anything except trying to get the job done,” Maddox said. “And so I’m excited to be mayor. And, I’m excited about Mornings with the Mayor and I look forward to our next Morning with the Major edition.”

Maddox said most of the constituents he spoke with were concerned about teenagers committing violent crimes across the Druid City.
