Most of the time when Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford makes an announcement, you’re never quite sure of what he means exactly. Take this morning for example when he casually spoke of cutting funding for Operation New Birmingham and moved on the next subject.
Needless to say this was a bit of an eyebrow raiser, but recognizing the potential for a conversation we sent out this tweet:
Yes, we did notice the typo. Aside from that the local media had been pretty quite until now… This article posted by The Birmingham News removes any doubt about whether the mayor meant what he said. No official comments have been made by ONB, but considering that they received $450,000 in city funds last year, this could be a serious blow.
