Surrounded by family and friends Mayor Combs announced in his acceptance speech that he, along with the council and citizens, would strengthen Gulfport's future.
Mayor Ken Combs says, "I think the main thing an inauguration does is show a new start there's not much we can do about what's happened in the past, we need to look to the future we can do something about today and tomorrow but nothing about yesterday."
