Michael Sizemore was officially sworn in as a City Councilman for the City of Glencoe on Thursday, February 2, at Glencoe City Hall.

“It’s a good feeling,” said Sizemore, who said he is ready to get to work and to continue to move the city in the right direction. “I’m very humble to have the opportunity to serve and serve is what I want to do. We have many good things going on in the city, and I’m grateful to be a part of it. I feel my strengths will be complimentary to the council.”

Sizemore is no stranger to the citizens of Glencoe, as he currently serves as Vice President of the Glencoe Athletic Foundation. He has been employed by Bellsouth/AT&T for 24 years while coaching youth t-ball, baseball, softball and basketball in the Glencoe community.

City Councilman Colt Turner believed Sizemore is the right man for the job.

“Michael Sizemore is going to do a great job and he is ready to work. We need that person who’ll show up and be committed to giving it his all. Sizemore gives us some good knowledge, and he is easy to talk to and easy to work with.”

Mayor Chris Hare agreed with Turner.

“Considering the changes and circumstances Glencoe is experiencing, I can’t think of a better person than Michael Sizemore to fill this council seat. I know he is excited to step up for the city, and we’re excited to have someone with strong leadership skills who will show up and be involved.”

Sizemore replaces former Councilman Chris Simms who recently resigned from office.
