Barry Joins East Mississippi Mayors Group

Meridian Mayor Cheri Barry is reaching across county lines to try to work with other east Mississippi mayors.

Barry said during a news conference Wednesday that she has joined the East Mississippi Mayors Group, an informal monthly gathering of mayors from this area. They share ideas on how to improve cities and the region.

"It is the first time the mayor of Meridian has been involved with that group of mayors, and I am so proud to be a part of it, because we are the largest city in that group," said Barry.

Barry has not said whether she plans to join the national mayors association. Former mayor, John Robert Smith, was actively involved with that group.
