Born and raised in Scottsboro, Jim McCamy’s roots run deep. He raised all three of his children in Scottsboro, where they graduated from the public-school system.
Jim is no stranger to public service. He worked nine years with the Tennessee Valley Authority and retired as the Manager of TVA Crisis and Emergency Management. Prior to his stint at TVA, he served as Congressman Bud Cramer’s Congressional District Director for six years, managing congressional staff and multiple district offices across North Alabama. Jim was the liaison to various government agencies such as the U.S. Army Missile Command, Missile Defense Agency, NASA and the National Weather Service. He was also the liaison working with North Alabama Economic Development and business development organizations, recruiting jobs to our area.
Jim also served Jackson County as Director of the Jackson County Emergency Management Agency where he established the first coordinated outdoor warning capability and system and was the liaison to the National Weather Service in siting and establishing the NWS Hytop Doppler Radar.
“I feel my experience in serving and protecting the public over the last 30 years, along with my experience with economic development in North Alabama, has prepared me to serve as the Mayor of Scottsboro. I know how vital it is to work with local, state and federal leaders to make sure our issues are heard and addressed. In order for our city to be prepared for the future, get our economy in the right direction and continue to make Scottsboro a great place to raise a family, we must have a comprehensive plan. I will have an open-door policy to communicate, collaborate and cooperate with the city council and department heads to move our city forward, while preserving our traditional hometown values. I look forward to getting my message out on the campaign trail over the next couple of months on why I am the best candidate for the job.”
