A multi-colored crowd of about 900 people gathered at a Savannah church to pay their final respects to the city's first African-American mayor today. Floyd Adams, Jr. was remembered as a man who was quote "called to bring people together" and who reached across racial lines.
Georgia's main port city will get a new mayor next year. Voters in Savannah will go to the polls on Tuesday to decide which of six candidates will replace Otis Johnson, barred from a third term in office. The city is a player in the state's logistics and tourism sectors, but candidates have focused on setting themselves apart from City Hall's recent past.
