Opening Speaker

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill has dedicated his life to public service, from his youth
as an Eagle Scout and SGA President at The University of Alabama to his professional career in
the West Alabama Chamber of Commerce and Tuscaloosa County public schools. A native of
Heflin, Ala., he was first elected to public office as a representative of Alabama House District
62 in 2010 with 87 percent of the vote. He was elected as Secretary of State in 2014 with 65
percent of the vote, and he has dramatically enhanced the efficiency of the office through a series

of reforms and innovations. Since he took office, Alabama has more than one million newly-
registered voters, setting new state records for voter registration and participation in elections.

He has traveled internationally representing the state and is frequently requested to appear on
local and national media networks. He serves as a church deacon and either leads or is a member
of more than 30 civic, community and professional organizations. John has traveled
internationally and represented our state and nation in Canada, China, Germany, Israel, Russia
and Taiwan. He and his wife Cindy, a native of Phil Campbell, Ala., and former public school
educator, have two adult children and reside in Tuscaloosa. He is also the author of ALABAMA:
THE BICENTENNIAL, a book on the State and some of its notable people throughout history.
