Muskegon Heights mayor delivers first State of the City


MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. (WZZM) --  Now that she has been in office for two months, Muskegon Heights Mayor Kimberly Sims says it was time to brief her constituents about the challenges they face, and her plans going forward.

Monday night the new mayor delivered her first State of the City address. In spite of what she calls “a perception problem,” Mayor Sims told the crowd at city hall there are many things to celebrate in Muskegon Heights.

“We look at what Muskegon Heights is not doing and we don’t celebrate what Muskegon Heights is doing,” she pointed out.  

If people cooperate and work together, the Mayor says she thinks they can find innovative answers to their problems.
