The Alabama Governor’s Office released Friday the latest three state appointments, all of which are effective immediately.

The three appointments include two county commission seats and a district attorney position.

Carmen Moore-Zeigler was appointed to serve on the Montgomery County Commission. Zeigler’s appointment comes after the passing of longtime Montgomery County Commissioner Elton Dean in early June of this year.

Moore-Zeigler heads the Montgomery-based Moore Zeigler Group, a consulting firm that specializes in public affairs and government relations.

Matthew McKenzie joins the Baldwin County Commission after successfully campaigning for District 2 after former commissioner Joe Davis III announced this January that he would not seek a second term.

McKenzie, who was the presumptive Republican nominee for District 2 after this year’s primary season, is a retired member of the U.S. Marine Corps and Alabama Law Enforcement Officer.

Todd Watson has been appointed District Attorney for Monroe and Conecuh Counties after successfully winning the Democratic nomination for the 35th Judicial Circuit. Watson previously served as Assistant District Attorney on the same judicial circuit.
