By Staff Reports
Hartselle Mayor Randy Garrison was elected president of the Alabama League of Municipalities May 19 during the business session of the League’s 2023 Convention and Expo at the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Complex.
More than 750 municipal officials from around the state attended this three-day convention to discuss legislative issues, hear from state leaders, share resources and conduct official business.
Elected mayor in 2016, Garrison previously served as vice chair of the League’s Committee on Community and Economic Development and represented the 5th Congressional District on the League’s board of directors. He was publisher for the Hartselle Enquirer for 14 years.
Garrison will serve a one-year term representing the organization’s more than 450 member cities and towns.
“Being asked to serve in this position is very humbling, and I will do my best to serve to the level of leadership of those whose footsteps I follow,” Garrison said. “I look forward to working with the League’s Board of Directors and staff in the coming year as we strengthen local government through support and advocacy with state and federal lawmakers as well as assist municipal officials from around the state with achieving greater continuing education certifications and increasing their exposure to resources.”
