Hundreds witnessed one of the most significant Change of Commands today at the Stennis Space Center. After three years of serving as the commander of Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command for the United States Navy, Admiral Timothy Gallaudet is retiring. He says he is excited about the change of command and looks forward to Admiral John Okon taking over. “I couldn’t be more happy and proud. I think our command here at Stennis Space Center has never been a better position and the new commander, Admiral John Okon, is the right guy for the job and he is going to take everything that we have done and keep it moving forward.” Admiral Okon is no stranger to South Mississippi and is excited to be moving back. He says this will allow him to be directly involved in the communities along the Gulf Coast. “It feels like coming back home. It really does. Valerie and I were here back in the late 90s and coming back we just had the same friends, same family, and what’s most important and what we felt right away when we got on the Coast is the love that the Gulf Coast and Mississippi has for the Navy.” Not only is this a significant change for Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command, but for Mississippi as well. Today’s Change of Command was for the highest ranking officer in the state of Mississippi. Gallaudet says his greatest accomplishment while in command were advancements in technology and he looks forward to Admiral Okon continuing this. “That’s really where we have a special capability and we’ve advance it quite significantly and those were focus areas of mine. You’ll see our U.S. Navy and military using those capabilities, unmanned systems and super computers and high performance computing more and more in the future,” said Admiral Gallaudet. Admiral Gallaudet is considering a few positions in the government and will be announcing more in the future.

Pascagoula Mayor Elect Dane Maxwell says his close relationship with President Donald Trump and Lt. Governor Tate Reeves is why he’ll lead the city in the right direction. Maxwell tells News 25 he wants to run Pascagoula like a business, clean up the city, and move the small business feel of Anchor Square to Market Street to bring more traffic to that area. He wants to bring in new businesses, but also support those already in the city. With President Trump’s promise to increase our Navy by about 80 ships, the mayor-elect says Ingalls and the city plan to take full advantage of the economic impact it will bring. “The build up for the ships. You know I worked for President Trump for 16 months and he’s adamant about increasing that and Ingalls is one of the best shipyards in the world. Certainly we’re going to get some of that in our pipeline. You know, we visit the White House in August. They’re going to do a day for the Pascagoula City Council. That’s going to be on top of my agenda to make sure Ingalls is taken care of when I get there.” Also topping Mayor Elect Maxwell’s to do list in Pascagoula: continue his work with the White House and FEMA to reduce flood costs in the city and bring in city ordinances to remove slabs left behind by Hurricane Katrina.   [READ MORE]
