I was appointed to the Birmingham City Council in December of 2018. Since my appointment I have worked tirelessly to effectively serve the residents of District 1. I currently serve as the chairmen of the Governmental Affairs and Public Information committee and sit on both the Economic Development and Public Safety committees. One of the first actions taken by Woods was to pass ordinances that required the City Council to hold quarterly meetings at 5:30 p.m. I have had many opportunities to work on various political campaigns. These experiences have taught me how to listen to what people want. You can't assume you know what people want, you have to seek them out and listen to their concerns. Most recently I served as campaign manager for newly elected Sheriff Mark Pettway.
