Statement to Gulfport employees

The following message is from Dr. John Kelly, chief administrative officer:

This email is to notify city employees that the administration is aware of the recent events that have occurred, regarding Mayor Brent Warr and his wife.

However, out of respect for their personal privacy and respect for the federal process, please understand that very little can be discussed at this time.

And he thanks you in advance for not speculating publicly about this personal issue.

In addition, you all should know that Mayor Brent Warr is still the mayor of Gulfport and the city will continue to function and continue to work toward recovery each and every day.

Thank you very much for your hard work and understanding in this matter.


John Kelly
