Gilich kicks off State of the City week

Mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich will deliver his State of the City presentation today, to a luncheon and online audience, and to cable TV audiences the rest of the week.

The occasion marks Gilich’s third State of the City address since being elected in a special election in 2015, but his first since beginning his first full term more than six months ago.

The mayor speaks to a Biloxi Bay Chamber luncheon audience of more than 600 today at the Beau Rivage. Doors to the Magnolia Ballroom open at 11 a.m. and the program begins at 11:30 a.m. No tickets will be available at the door.

The mayor’s presentation will be on the city’s website later this afternoon and will be shown to Cable One audiences on Cable Channel 69, at the top of every hour, from Wednesday at 1 p.m. through Friday at 1 p.m.
