Parker elected to leadership post


Etowah County Commissioner Carolyn Parker has been elected to serve as a member of the Association of County Commissions of Alabama’s Legislative Committee.

ACCA is the statewide association representing Alabama’s county governments. The Legislative Committee is composed of a chairman, the Association’s past presidents still serving in county government and a representative from each of ACCA’s 12 districts. 

The Legislative Committee works to formulate the Association’s legislative agenda for the upcoming year.

“Counties are a creation of the state, which means they can only do what the state authorizes them to do,” said ACCA Executive Director Sonny Brasfield. 

“Counties have an incredibly close working relationship with the Legislature for this reason, and serving on this committee is a huge responsibility.”

  Parker represents ACCA’s District 3, which includes Cherokee, DeKalb, Etowah, Jackson and Marshall counties.

The Association of County Commissions of Alabama is a statewide organization representing county government in Alabama. 

ACCA 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 the interests of county government before state and federal organizations and agencies.
