Mayor Gives "State of the City" Address

Many new projects are underway around Lufkin. At the final First Friday luncheon of the year, the city's mayor talked about the recent progress being made.

Mayor Jack Gorden called Lufkin a small city with big city amenities.

The revitalization of downtown and the city's recent certification as a retirement community are among things he's proud of.

Gorden was elected Mayor of Lufkin back in May after serving Ward 5 on the city council for 22 years.
