Representing the people of Headland, government leads the city into the future
Just as Headland is a progressive city, its mayor and city council are constantly working to measure progress with quality of life.
Mayor Ray Marler is in his second term as mayor after serving four years in the city council. City Council positions are held by John Glover, district one; Jody Singleton, district two; Amy Balkcom, district three; Joe Falkner, district four; and Kendrick Spurling, district five. Together they weigh the decisions that affect the business and social concerns of the city, and the lives of Headland’s residents.
The council meets on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 6 p.m. in the council chambers of the city hall, 25 Grove Street. The public is welcome and invited to attend and take an active part.
As a resident of the city of Headland,which I am proud to call this city my home. I retired from the USAF with 22 years of honorable service, attended 2 years at Wallace Community College in Dothan, worked in helicopter maintenance and electric systems at Fort Rucker, Liccense # 5149089, participated in IAMW, am a member of two professional associations, an active member of the National Baptist Conventional of America, a Deacon at Greater Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church and Chairman of the Trustee Board.
I would like to give the citizens of Headland a positive candidate that will help and get involve in our whole community. I have been very involved in the city government for over eight years. I believe my military experience will be crucial to upcoming decisions that will be concerns for the Headland community. My church affiliation have prepared me to execute a vision of
leadership, visibility to better serve and support this progressive city.
In conclusion, I believe that working with the citizens in District One is a very important job that work and life experience are key to successful decision making. I know that when citizens show up for council meeting with something to say, they not only want to be heard but know that their concerns don't fall on deaf ears. The citizens of Headland is our past, present, and our future.
