Susie Hovater Malone has announced her candidacy for the Russellville City Council District 5 seat.
She is a native of Russellville, a graduate of Russellville High School and earned her Bachelor of Science and Masters degree in Education from the University of North Alabama.
She has taught at Russellville High School for more than 30 years and has served as an adjunct faculty member at Northwest-Shoals Community College and Calhoun Junior College.
Before entering the teaching profession, she worked 12 years as an administrative assistant for the Governmental and Civic Affairs Department of the Monsanto Company in Decatur.
She has been involved in numerous local and state professional and volunteer organizations for many years. She is a member of Russellville First Baptist Church.
“Russellville is a wonderful place to live, to work, and to rear children and grandchildren,” Malone said.
“However, I see specific needs in Russellville that should be addressed such as the economy, jobs, educational needs of our youth, roads repaired and the revitalization of downtown Russellville.
“If elected, I will work diligently to bring businesses and industries to our area which would increase our sales tax base and help enrich our city.”
Malone is married to Thomas W. (Tinker) Malone who is retired from the Alabama Army National Guard. They have two daughters, Hayley Fuller, who teaches at Russellville Elementary School and is married to Eric Fuller, and Hillary Hall, who is employed with a local bank and two granddaughters, Cameron and Catherine.
“I ask for your vote and support. Russellville has been my home all my life and I want to see that it continues to grow. I have lived and voted in District 5 for more than 30 years and I want to be your representative.”
