TROY – Troy will rename a street after one of its first African-American council members – and the first woman to hold office in the city.
The Troy City Council will rename Walters Street to Johnnie Mae Warren Avenue by Resolution during the City Council meeting on Tuesday, June 25, 2013, at 5:00 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall. A reception for Mrs. Warren will immediately follow the Council Meeting.
“Mrs. Johnnie Mae Warren served with honor and distinction in this community as a council member and a city leader,” said Mayor Jason Reeves. “She is one of the most remarkable people this city has produced and has lived a life of incredible historical significance and impact on her home of Troy, Alabama. We are indebted to her for her service and example, and duly honor her for them.”
