During the County Commission meeting on September 14, 2020, Commission Earl Reeves was recognized for his tenure in office by Senator Clyde Chambliss, fellow commissioners, and by the Association of County Commissions of Alabama (ACCA).
Commission Reeves was first elected as District 5 County Commissioner in 1992 and retired in 2012. Reeves was then re-elected in 2016 and will complete 24 years of service to Elmore County in November 2020.
Senator Clyde Chambliss presented Commissioner Reeves with a resolution and shared his deepest appreciation for his years of service. “We are all here to leave things better than we found them. If we think back to 1992 in Elmore County until now, Commissioner Reeves, along with others, have left Elmore County way better than he found it”, stated Senator Chambliss.
The County Commission honored Commissioner Reeves during the meeting as well. “When elected to the County Commission and given the opportunity to serve as Chairman, Commissioner Reeves was one that provided me with alot of encouragement, guidance, and direction. I will be forever indebted to him for his commitment and willingness to advice, encourage and support not only the citizens in which he serves but his fellow commissioners and our staff here in Elmore County”, stated Chairman Stubbs.
