•Personal message: I am a member of the Clanton City Council representing the people of District 5. Since I was elected to office in 2000, I completed 80 hours of training from Alabama League of Cities to become a Certified Municipal Official and an Advanced Certified Municipal Official. I am active in the community serving on the Chilton County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, a member of Chilton County United Way Board and director of First Baptist Church Weekday Education. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve in all of these capacities, especially as city council member. Since being elected, I have seen many goals reached for our city but feel there are many more things to be done. Thank you District 5 and the city of Clanton for allowing me to serve you. I look forward to the next four years representing you as your council member.

    The economic downturn slowed our progress of getting more restaurants and shopping but I’m proud that we did not have to layoff any employee. The City is financially sound and I hope that when the elections are over, we can get back to work aggressively pursuing new businesses. Let’s keep the money in Chilton County!
