Gulley’s administration has made several significant accomplishments. Among them:
Improved city finances by taking the city from millions in debt to a budget surplus.
Established a business-friendly administration, which has resulted in the recruitment of more business and industry to Bessemer. About 3,500 jobs have been created in the city during his administration.
Improved the staffing levels and technology at the Bessemer Police Department to combat crime, resulting in a dramatic drop in the city’s overall crime rate over the past six years.
Created a unified working relationship between the Mayor and the Council.
