HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Historic Hattiesburg Downtown Association has gotten a new Executive Director, Andrea Saffle.
Saffle is not officially in the position yet, but she will be coming into this position after Walt Denton. She said she already has big plans and her first is to speak with all of downtown's promotional partners to find out their thoughts and concerns.
“Truly, this is not a one person job and I can't single handedly save downtown and I make no bones about that. I tell everyone that has called me or congratulated me it is going to make a team effort. I know I've got an army of people behind me. I got a lot of enthusiasm and excitement around me and within me. I have got a passion for downtown,”
Saffle is asking everyone that would like to get involved to contact her at
