Haraway named to state commission board

MADISON – Steve Haraway has been chosen as a new member of the 2017-2018 Board of Directors of the Association of County Commissions of Alabama.

Haraway represents District 2 on the Madison County Commission.

Haraway was elected to the board position at the association’s 89th annual convention in August. He will represent the association’s district 2, which consists of Limestone and Madison counties.

The Association of County Commissions of Alabama is the statewide association representing Alabama’s 67 county governments. The association’s board of directors is composed of three executive officers, the association’s past presidents still serving in county government and a representative from each of the association’s 12 established districts.

“County governments are often limited in what they can do because county governments are a creation of the state,” association executive director Sonny Brasfield said. “That means it is incredibly important for counties to have a strong working relationship with members of the Alabama Legislature.”

“Serving on this board is a tremendous responsibility within the ACCA and Commissioner Haraway has proven himself to be aptly prepared for the task,” Brasfield said.

Haraway formerly served as a member of Madison City Council.

The Association of County Commissions of Alabama is committed to representing Alabama’s 67 counties with one voice. The association 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 interests of county government before state and federal organizations and agencies.

The Association of County Commissions of Alabama’s address is 100 N. Jackson St. in Montgomery. For more information, call 334-263-7594 or visit alabamacounties.org.
