    The Honorable Thomas "Tommy" Battle, Jr.
    Mayor of the City of Huntsville
    Mayor Tommy BattleTommy Battle is in his second term as Mayor of Huntsville. Dedicated to creating jobs and diversifying Huntsville's economic base, Mayor Battle has worked to assemble a coalition of regional leaders committed to recruiting industry, workforce development and high quality education. As a result, Huntsville leads the state in new jobs and economic investment. His GEO, Cyber, Energy and Biotech initiatives work to unite the City's rich intellectual capital with new opportunities. The Mayor's goal is to make the best possible use of Huntsville's collective brainpower to ensure that the City becomes a global leader in innovation, research and development.

    Battle believes Huntsville's continued success is a result of its ability to think strategically for the long-term, and he directed the City's planning department to engage the community in a comprehensive master plan that is staging the city's future for decades to come. The BIG Picture's is tackling land use and quality of life decisions regarding neighborhood revitalization, urban redevelopment, recreation, transportation, design standards, and zoning changes.

    Battle works for smart, measured growth with an infrastructure that allows citizens to maintain a high quality of life. When state and federal transportation budgets were cut, Battle negotiated an unprecedented $250 million, five-year, cost-sharing road package with the State to ensure Huntsville would build the critical roads it needs to move traffic.

    A champion of teamwork, Battle strives to work collaboratively with leadership and citizens. Through the Mayor's fiscally conservative leadership, the City has maintained a balanced budget and earned triple-A credit ratings for the past seven years, a distinction held by a small percentage of municipalities in the U.S. As a result, Huntsville is in an enviable position of stability and growth that has earned it global attention.

    Born in Birmingham in 1955, Battle moved to Huntsville in 1980 after receiving a business degree from The University of Alabama. Four years later, he was elected to the Huntsville City Council, where he served as Finance Chair. His successful career as an entrepreneur and businessman, along with decades of community service, effectively prepared him for the demanding role as the City's chief executive officer, recruiter, and champion of Huntsville's future.

    The Mayor is married to the former Eula Sammons, a retired kindergarten teacher. The couple have one son, Drew, and his wife Lauren, and grandson, George.
