Andy Alexander has announced his candidacy for the Andalusia City Council, District 3.

Alexander represented the district from 1996 until 2008.

While serving on the council, he completed 40 hours of voluntary formal classroom training in municipal government operations. In 2002, after 80 hours of training, he was certified as an advanced municipal official.

He said that during his time in office, he had numerous projects in his district, including sewerage and water system upgrades, street resurfacing projects, and electrical system upgrades. He said he also was involved in improvement projects in parks, playgrounds, walking trails and downtown lighting. All of these helped with beautification of the city, he said.

Alexander said he wants to listen to the needs of all local citizens, including those in District 3, and said if elected, he will do what is right for the residents of his district.

“By working together with other city councilmen and our mayor, I believe all districts in Andalusia will keep improving,” he said.

He is a 1974 graduate of Andalusia High School and has worked with the public in management positions for more than 35 years.

He and his wife of 38 years, the former Frances Floyd, have two children, Chad Alexander and Mandy Alexander, and two grandchildren, Marybeth, 8, and Austin 3.
