McCutcheon to address Chamber Lunch today



Speaker of the Alabama House of Representatives Mac McCutcheon will address the monthly Chamber Lunch of the Blount County-Oneonta Chamber of Commerce. The lunch is set for 11 a.m. today, Wednesday, Nov. 30, at World Outreach Center in Oneonta. McCutcheon said he will discuss state General Fund budget issues, with special attention to infrastructure and transportation matters.

McCutcheon was elected Speaker of the House in August, replacing Mike Hubbard who was convicted in June on 12 charges of ethics violations.

McCutcheon resides in Monrovia, serving as state representative for District 25 since 2006. He has a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Trinity University and a wide variety of professional experience: minister, farmer, police officer, investigator, and hostage negotiator for the Huntsville Police Department, and zoning coordinator for the City of Huntsville.

Well known quote, upon his election as Speaker: “To put it bluntly, the days of the imperial speakership are over.”

MainStreet Family Urgent Care is the sponsor for this month’s luncheon.
