FROM STAFF REPORTS

Shelby County Commissioners Dan Acker and Lindsey Allison were honored by the Association of County Commissions of Alabama for their long years of service to county government and the state of Alabama.

Both commissioners have given 20 years in public service to the county.

“Commissioners Acker and Allison deserve the thanks of all Alabamians for their dedication to public service and their personal sacrifice,” said ACCA President Merceria Ludgood. “Considering the extraordinary challenges county commissioners face every day, they have continually served constituents with honor and pride, and they deserve a pat on the back from everyone in Shelby County.”

ACCA presents the Tenure in Office Award annually to honor commissioners who have served at least 16 years in office. The award is given for four-year increments thereafter.

The Association of County Commissions of Alabama is a statewide organization representing county government in Alabama. ACCA promotes improved county government services in Alabama, offers educational programs for county officials and their staff members, administers insurance programs for county governments and employees, offers legal advice, and represents the interests of county government before state and federal organizations and agencies.
