Alton “Buddy” Bagley

     Mayor Pro Tem Buddy Bagley resigned from the City Council June 4th at close of business.  Mayor Pro Tem Bagley’s statement is below:

      First of all, I want to say that serving on the Adairsville City Council and as Mayor Pro Tem has been one of the most rewarding and fulfilling opportunities I have had in my life.   Serving the community that I was raised in and raised my family in was the highlight of my career.

     This community has been through good and bad times and they have helped me through good and bad times.  This community rallied around me when my wife of many years, Darlene, passed away and they have continued to support me through the annual motorcycle ride that is held every year honoring her memory and supporting Cancer Navigators, a charity that is near and dear to me and has helped so many in our community.

     During my years on the City Council, I have seen this City achieve great things.  One of my proudest moments was the opening of the Veterans Memorial Park last year.  This was a project I brought forward and spearheaded and with the help of the Council, this City has a Park it will be proud of and enjoy for many years to come!

     As many of you know, over the past five years I have had several health issues from a heart procedure to back surgery.  The healing process has been difficult to say the least.

     After much prayer and reflection, I have made the difficult decision to resign my position and focus on my healing.

     I fully intend to remain an active part of this community that I love so dearly, and I continue to pray for the Mayor, City Council and staff to continue to lead this City in a positive direction.

     Adairsville’s future is bright!  Thank you for your understanding and please keep me in your prayers.
