Spirit Of Public Service Award

Representative Frank McDaniel, (D), Albertville was presented with The Business Council of Alabama’s “Spirit of Public Service Award” on March 30th in Montgomery.  It was presented to McDaniel in recognition of his outstanding leadership and support of the business community.

McDaniel, who is retiring from the Alabama Legislature this year,  chairs the Commerce Committee, which receives most bills affecting businesses.

Mr. Bill Canary, President of The Business Council of Alabama praised Rep. McDaniel saying, “throughout his long service to his constituents and the people of Alabama, Frank McDaniel has been a man of honor and principle with whom to work, and a legislator who has been of valuable assistance to the efforts of the business community of Alabama on many occasions.  It was these qualities that earned him our “Spirit of Public Service” award, which has only been presented to one other individual.”

McDaniel says this award and what it signifies means a lot to him.  “For the twenty years I have served in the House of Representatives I have consistently worked to improve the business climate, streamline reporting requirements that affect business and guard against proposed legislation that would adversely impact our business community.  It is an honor to follow Speaker Seth Hammett as a recipient of this distinctive award.”
