Henley Hicks, a Republican, announces his bid for re-election as Geneva County Commissioner District 1 on June 3, 2014.
Henley has served as District 1 Commissioner for the past 4 years. He is a life-time resident of the City of Slocomb and is married to Lisa Ward Hicks. He and Lisa have 1 son, Stephen and they are members of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church. Before becoming District 1 Commissioner 4 years ago, Henley served 12 years on the Slocomb City Council and 9 years with the Slocomb Police Department. He has owned and operated his own business for the past 16 years. Mr. Hicks has a total of 25 years experience in city and county government.
Henley currently serves on:
The East Geneva County Senior Citizens Advisory Board
The Southeast Alabama Planning Commission
The Rural Conservation and Development Board
Henley strives to have an open line of communication with the citizens of District 1 by continuing to meet monthly with the Slocomb and Malvern City Councils. Mr. Hicks' commitment to spend taxpayer dollars wisely is evident by his working relationship with the County Engineer to improve the all roads in District 1. This improvement includes right of ways and drainage ditches. Henley also continues to support the Highway 52 project. Mr. Hicks and the Commission continue to petition the state for monies and grants to accomplish these improvements to our roadways and other projects. Henley's support of our law enforcement and fire/ems is evident by his vote with the County Commissioners to help fund our fire departments to help purchase much needed equipment and other items so the departments will be prepared and the citizens will be protected. Commissioner Hicks and the County Commission as a whole are truly dedicated to bringing much needed jobs to the citizens of Geneva County. Henley supports the commissions efforts in working with state and local industrial boards. This is evident by the support of the Dothan/Houston County Chamber of Commerce to bring a job symposium to Dothan.
Future plans and projects for the next 4 years includes:
The upgrade and renovation of the Geneva County Courthouse to improve and expand the offices to better serve the citizens.
Commissioner Hicks will work closely with the County Engineer on our 2014 project of resurfacing of County Road 49 from
