By Gary Lloyd
JEFFERSON COUNTY — Jefferson County Commissioner Joe Knight will run unopposed for the District 4 seat this year.
Knight, a Republican, is unopposed in the June primary and general election. He will begin his second term on the Jefferson County Commission in November. Knight was first elected to the commission in 2010.
“I am honored to be able to serve another four years,” Knight said. “Our first term has been tumultuous at best, but we did some heavy lifting. We still have work to do such as shortening the wait to obtain a car tag, re-evaluating our roads department and doing our part to make this county more attractable for businesses to locate here.”
The district Knight represents encompasses Trussville, Clay, Pinson, Grayson Valley, Palmerdale, Gardendale, Morris, Kimberly, Warrior, County Line, Trafford, and parts of Center Point, Irondale, Tarrant and Birmingham.
“I look forward to serving the citizens of District 4 to the best of my ability for another four years,” Knight said.
Knight is an attorney who has been in private practice for 20 years. He’s a member of the Trussville Rotary Club. He’s been married for 26 years to Caryl, and they live in Trussville. They have three children and one grandchild and attend Holy Infant of Prague Catholic Church.
