Acting Mayor Mum On His Support

Birmingham’s Interim Mayor Roderick Royal knows who he will vote for next Tuesday.

Just don’t expect him to give a “shout out” to that candidate.

This morning on FOX6 News Good Day Alabama, Mayor Royal detailed recommendations listed in his Plan of Action for the next mayor.

Jefferson County Commissioner William Bell and attorney-turned-community-activist Patrick Cooper will be on the ballot in Tuesday’s runoff.

“I obviously have my personal choice fixed already in my mind,” Royal tells me.

“I think it will be best to justĀ  say we will work with whomever the voters ultimately send to City Hall. I think that’s a responsible thing. I think that’s an accountable thing.” Watch those comments at 3:57 here.

As for his Plan of Action, the candidates obviously are too busy with the final days of this campaign to talk with the man residing in the Mayor’s Office.

Royal has not heard from either one.

He expects a meeting once the runoff is decided.

*A reminder: you can watch Bell and Cooper debate live, online tonight at 9pm on FoxAlabamaLive.com
