TRUSSVILLE — The Jefferson County House Delegation held a meeting on Thursday, Feb. 27, 2020, and appointed a new member to the Jefferson County Community Service Committee.
Effective immediately, Sid McNeal will replace Richard Hitchcock on the committee.
State Representative Danny Garrett, who nominated both Hitchcock and McNeal, said he was pleased the Jefferson County GOP Delegation supported the nomination.
“Sid will be an excellent member of the Community Services Committee,” said Garrett. “We are happy to have another resident of House District 44 serving in this important position for the Jefferson County Legislative delegation.”
Hitchcock resigned the position to travel and enjoy time with family.
Sid McNeal is the Senior Vice President at EBSCO Information Services. McNeal served on the Trussville City Schools Board of Education from 2009-2018. During this time, he served two terms as board president, as well as two years as vice-president.
The Jefferson County Community Services Committee was formed after the Jefferson County bond refinancing was approved by voters in 2016. The committee was formed to oversee and carry out various community projects in the county.
Members of the committee are chosen by House members in the Jefferson County delegation and by Senate members.
