Williams enters District 2 race
Devinti M. Williams believes it’s time for the next generation of leadership to step forward for District 2. He has entered the race for Madison City Council.
“I’m a member of that next generation of leadership and (want) to craft solutions to address problems that will arise in District 2 as we continue to grow and develop,” Williams said.
Williams supports his claim as best candidate by citing his educational background, professional experience and sincere interest in crafting solutions that improve quality of life.
Williams’ platform emphasizes fiscal responsibility, transparent decision making and inclusive government. His conversations with numerous District 2 citizens and groups prove “all issues boil down to quality of life issues — roads, schools, parks and green space.”
“The elected representative will need to focus on creating a long-term plan to increase revenue that does not involve property or sales tax increases, which reduce quality,” Williams said.
He will focus on completing the I-565/County Line Road interchange, creating incentives for businesses to locate along County Line Road and managing growth to save city funds in the Limestone County portion of District 2.
These improvements will increase revenue for District 2, without reducing quality of life, he said.
Williams plans to maintain the last decade’s success in growth and development for District 2 “by focusing on smart and strategic problem solving.”
Williams is a licensed attorney in Arizona and Alabama, having practiced law “inside and outside of the federal government” for 12 years. He attended Butler High School, graduated from Athens High School and received a bachelor’s degree on four-year academic and ROTC scholarship at Alabama A&M University.
After military service, Williams earned a juris doctorate degree in corporate and business law at Samford University.
His wife Kimberly N. Williams works as a contracting officer with Marshall Space Flight Center. Their son Devinti M. Williams II, 6 and is a kindergartner at Columbia Elementary School.
For 10 years, Williams has been involved in the Federal Bar Association, advancing from chapter membership chairman and chapter president to national 11th Circuit vice president.
Former District 2 Councilman Steve Harraway was elected to the Madison County Commission.
