Armstead recognized for government service

Marengo County Commissioner Fred Armstead has been presented with the Tenure in Office Award by the Association of County Commissions of Alabama (ACCA) for his 32 years of service to county government and the state of Alabama. The award was presented this August at the Association’s 91st Annual Convention.

Marengo County Commissioner Fred Armstead.

“Commissioner Armstead deserves the gratitude of all Alabamians for his dedication to public service and his personal sacrifice,” said 2019-2020 ACCA President David Money. “Considering the extraordinary challenges county commission members face every day, Commissioner Armstead has continuously served his constituents with honor and pride, and he deserves a pat on the back from everyone in Marengo County.”

ACCA annually presents the Tenure in Office Award to honor commission members who have served for at least 16 years in office. The award is given for four-year increments thereafter.

The Association of County Commissions of Alabama is a statewide organization speaking for all 67 counties with ONE voice. It 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.
