Long appointed to state housing board

Morgan County Commission Chairman Ray Long has been appointed to a state position that will enable him to help make decisions that impact families in need of housing throughout the state.

He was named by Governor Robert Bentley to serve a seven-year term on the Alabama Housing and Finance Authority, effective Oct. 31. A public corporation, the Authority helps low to moderate-income families find affordable financing for safe, sanitary single and multi-family dwellings.

Long is the only county commissioner in the state to hold a position on the board.

“I’m looking forward to working on the board,” said Long. It’s a huge honor to be chosen. It’s not only an honor for me personally but for Morgan County as well, and I will represent our area well.”

“This position comes with great responsibility because you will be making important decisions that affect the citizens of Alabama,” said Governor Bentley of Long’s appointment. “You are a servant of the people of Alabama, and I trust that you will fulfill your duties and set a standard for others to follow.”

Members of the Authority must become familiar with AHFA’s operating environment, programs, policies and procedures. They are also responsible for reviewing meeting agendas, and must make independent, objective decisions and maintain fairness and impartiality without discrimination. Polices that the board adopts are in compliance with state and federal laws and regulations.

The governor appoints one person from each of the state’s seven congressional districts—one county commissioner, a mayor, two homebuilders, two real estate brokers, a lender, and one at-large member.
