2016 Year in Photographs It’s hard to capture in words the momentum Mobile experienced in 2016. Because a picture is worth 1,000 words, I am presenting to you my year in photographs. Waving good bye to the Carnival Fantasy on its inaugural cruise from Mobile. The Second Annual 1065 Music Festival with Party Animal Airbus delivers the first Mobile made A320 to JetBlue , the BluesMobile. Lacing up my skates before taking a spin at Riverside Ice, Mobile’s first outdoor ice skating rink. Celebrating the grand opening of Mardi Gras Park with the Excelsior Band. Leading a Mardi Gras parade with the MPD mounted unit. Second lining down the new Celebration Trail with Joe Cain Launching YES (Youth Empowered for Success) – our plan to reverse the effects of violence and secure a bright future for all of our children. That time I scaled a building for charity. Welcoming home DeMarcus Cousins, Mobile’s very first Olympic gold medalist.
