New councilperson for Ward 1

New City Council representative Marcus Huskey

The Homewood City Council appointed Marcus Huskey to its Ward 1, Place 1 seat at a specially called June 3 meeting. He will be sworn in on June 11.

Huskey replaced Anthony Smith, who resigned from this position after he moved to a different ward earlier this year.

Huskey currently serves as Chief of Staff for Jefferson County Commissioner Joe Knight and is a student at Birmingham School of Law.

“He has a lot of knowledge of regional issues with his position with Jefferson County and brings his strengths with organizational skills and procedures, federal grants, and how rep governments should be,” said Hunter Payne, Ward 4, Place 1 representative.

A 2006 graduate of Samford University, Huskey worked for members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the White House in Washington, DC before moving back to a house on Dale Avenue in Ward 1 in 2010.

Huskey is the fourth councilperson to be appointed in the 2008 class. Elections for city council will be held August 28.
