DOTHAN: Dothan Mayor Mike Schmitz is out of town. When the Mayor is gone he has to appoint an acting Mayor.
When Mayor Schmitz left Dothan he anointed District Six Commissioner Hamp Baxley as Mayor. That anointment ended on Saturday.
Then District 3 Commissioner Albert Kirkland, also known as "the choker" has been anointed as Acting Mayor. That anointment ends when Mayor Schmitz returns to Dothan this weekend.
Kirkland got his name " the choker " when he placed both hands around my neck and choked me against the wall at the Dothan Civic Center for the swearing in of elected officials. Dothan Public Works Director Jerry Corbin physically forced "the choker's/Albert Kirkland's hands from around my neck and saved me from serious physical injury.
THANKS JERRY CORBIN!!!
Kirkland was upset because a Dothan business electricity went off on a Saturday evening when that business was packed with customers. It was not the first time the electricity went off. Since the largest revenue source for the City of Dothan is electricity, I wrote in a article that Kirkland needed to check on the business and make sure the problem was repaired. The choker was offended that I suggested he actually do something and take care of the customers of Dothan utilities. Apparently "the choker" wants to draw $ 21,000.00 a year and do nothing.
To The Workforce of The City of Dothan...BEWARE... Kirkland has proven that he can be violent to those who might address him on issues. BE CAREFUL and have a witness. I would hate for you to be injured or killed by Albert Kirkland. Always prepare for an exit when dealing with Kirkland.
