NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) – Looking back over the decades since he became a public official nearly 25 years ago, Natchez Mayor Butch Brown can list dozens of projects with his fingerprints on them.
The construction of the Mississippi River bridge into Natchez, the bluff stabilization project, opening the Natchez Visitor Reception Center and countless others projects are on his list of achievements.
The Natchez Democrat reports Thursday marks Brown’s final day in office as mayor of Natchez and the beginning of his retirement from decades of public service. Brown served three terms as mayor and eight years as executive director of the Mississippi Department of Transportation and appointments to numerous federal, state and local boards.
