Publication honors LouAllens for service in local government

MOULTON — A state magazine for county commissioners honored the LouAllen family this month for three generations of involvement in local government.

An article in the Association of County Commissions of Alabama's twice-monthly publication featured Larry, Randall and Harold LouAllen, three generations of brothers who have represented District 4 in the Lawrence County Commission in the last two decades.

Larry LouAllen served two terms beginning in 1986. Randall LouAllen served two terms beginning in 1998 and Harold LouAllen was elected to the position last year.

Chairman Mose Jones, who has represented District 1 on the commission for more than 20 years, said the LouAllens he has worked with have always been straightforward and haven't allowed politics to cloud good judgment.

He credited Larry LouAllen with the establishment of the Indian Mile and Randall LouAllen with the Bankhead Water Project and the Jesse Owens Memorial Park, and said Harold LouAllen seems to be following their examples.

"The LouAllens have been some of the fairest commissioners I've worked with," said Jones. "Harold came in with integrity just like his brothers. I think he'll do good things for this county."
