Some drama, a “sermon” and a tearful good-bye highlighted Mayor Jeffrey Graham and Councilman Pat Partin’s last Camden City Council meeting Tuesday night. Emotions ran high during both actual business and in the parting words Partin, leaving council after 12 years, and Graham, as outgoing mayor, spoke at meeting’s end. The evening’s drama began as council considered approval of Graham’s nomination of five people to the city’s new Leaders Legacy program.
