Editor, The Commercial:
Reading the March 19 edition of the Commercial about Alderman George Stepps, sadly, did not surprise me. Was Stepps outside of the court house prior to the election with Jack Foster when Foster was shouting: “Vote for a black mayor?” His motives are clearly racial. Stepps needs to wake up and realize that Mayor Debe Hollingsworth won the election with the entire town’s votes, not just the white ones.
Shame on George Stepps. Pine Bluff needs to work together. That is the only way to help our city.
