After 37 years of service on the Madison Mayor and City Council, Councilman Bobby Crawford is saying goodbye to a life of public service as he enters retirement. Last Monday evening, Crawford cast his final votes during his last regular meeting as a city councilman.
“I have enjoyed my time on this council,” said Crawford. “I want to thank everybody that I have worked with over the years and I am grateful for all of you working with me, despite my outbursts,” joked Crawford.
Madison Mayor Fred Perriman praised Crawford for his decades of service to the City of Madison.
“I have to chime in and recognize Bobby Crawford for the 37 years of service as a council member for this city,” said Perriman. “In my years as mayor, I have had the opportunity to spend some of those years with him. We thank you for all you have done for this city.”
The city council and crowd gave Crawford a standing ovation at the end of the meeting.
