HINESVILLE, GA (WTOC) - Allen Brown won't be a stranger to City Hall when he returns to the Hinesville Mayor's seat in a couple of weeks.
He says plenty has changed in the 16 years since he left office, but some things remain the same.
He visited with old friends Thursday after winning a runoff election Tuesday night. He says some of the people who voted for him this time didn't even live here when he was mayor in the 1990's.
Brown says Hinesville has grown by leaps and bounds in the past decade or so, and that's mean growing pains. He wants people to be part of the city, no matter how long they've lived here.
"We're really a very interesting melting pot of people from everywhere and my goal is to bring those people together with representation from every aspect of the community," said Brown.
He's already planning to meet with groups of city workers to introduce himself and learn what he can do to keep things rolling.
Brown says one thing that hasn't changed is how great Hinesville can be when everybody works together.
