Alabama Governor Kay Ivey announced on Tuesday that Mac McCutcheon, former speaker of the Alabama House of Representatives, would be appointed chairman of the Madison County Commission, according to a statement from the governor’s office.

The seat has been left empty since U.S. Rep Dale Strong, R-Alabama, was elected to Congress from Alabama during this last midterm election.

“Speaker McCutcheon, who I have worked with for many years, is a proven leader, well-equipped to take the helm at the Madison County Commission, and I am proud to appoint him,” Ivey said in a statement released on Tuesday. “I know the people in that area are thrilled to have Mac continue serving Madison County. I am confident this part of our state will keep thriving thanks to the good work by all who serve on the Commission.”

Mac McCutcheon, who was originally elected as a member of the Alabama House of Representatives from the 25th District, was selected as the speaker of the Alabama House in August of 2016. Re-elected in 2019, McCutcheon chose not to seek re-election to his seat in the House in the 2022 elections.

The appointment on Tuesday is effective immediately, with McCutcheon now chairman of the Commission in charge of the third most populous area in the state of Alabama.
