Georgia Democrats Mourn Loss of Former Savannah Mayor Floyd Adams
Mayor Adams regarded trailblazer as first African American Mayor of Savannah
Atlanta, GA – Former Savannah Mayor Floyd Adams Jr. passed away Saturday. Members of the Democratic Party of Georgia released the following statements.
“This is a great loss for the city of Savannah and a great loss for our Party,” said Democratic Party of Georgia Chair DuBose Porter. “Mayor Adams was an outstanding public servant who dedicated his life to his community and our state.”
“Mayor Adams held the office of Mayor in a way that made all of Savannah, and indeed all of Georgia proud,” said DPG Vice Chair for Candidate Recruitment and Savannah resident Miguel Camacho. “Mayor Adams will be remembered for his two terms in office and the unified progress that occurred in Savannah during that time.”
Floyd Adams’ legacy of public service spanned several decades. Mayor Adams was first elected to the Savannah City Council in 1982. While serving as an Alderman at Large, Mayor Adams launched a successful bid for Mayor and became the first African American Mayor of Savannah. He served as a member of the Savannah-Chatham County School Board and was also publisher of the Savannah Herald.
