Belinda Ealey appointed administrator for county

Belinda Ealey, who has served as town clerk in Falkville for 26 years, has been appointed by Morgan County Commission Chairman Ray Long as chief administrative officer of the county.
She fills a position that was vacated by Syble Atkins last summer after then chairman John Glasscock was defeated in the Republican Primary Election. Deputy Administrator Carol Long will remain in her position.
Long made his choice for the position known last week, two days after voters elected him over Democratic nominee Clay New.
“Belinda (Ealey) is the right person for the job,” Long said. “She has a pleasing personality, 26 years of experience in town government administration and is highly respected by her peers.
“She’s well qualified and someone with whom I feel comfortable,” Long added. She will work with me and other staff members to make Morgan County a better place.”
Ealey was honored by the Alabama League of Municipalities as the state’s “Outstanding City Clerk in 2007 and is certified as a Master Municipal Clerk.”
“I’m excited and look forward to the challenge,” Ealey said.  “However, changing jobs is very emotional for me. I was young when I started working for Falkville and I’ve grown up in the job. “The people have been very good to me and I love them all. I just hope I can served the people of Morgan County as well as I’ve served the people of Falkville.”
Ealey, 52, is a graduate of the former Morgan County High School. She attended UAH and is a graduate of Albright Business College.  She and her husband Larry live in Morgan County.
The beginning salary for the chief administrator is $70,616.
Ealey said she would split her time between Falkville and the commission office for a few days before assuming her new job on a full-time basis.
