Oak Hill residents re-elected Mayor Austin McMullen to the Board of Commissioners last Tuesday, June 12. McMullen, who was unopposed in the election, received 100 percent of all counted votes.
“I am thankful for the support I have received from Oak Hill’s residents the past four years. Talking with voters at the polls today, I heard a consistent theme that citizens are pleased with the City’s direction,” McMullen said in a statement.
“In my second term on the Board of Commissioners, I plan to continue working for common sense solutions to the issues facing our community.”
McMullen identified several current city projects that he plans to continue including implementation of beautification and traffic improvement grants awarded by the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) and a new storm water management program. McMullen was first elected to the Board of Commissioners in 2008 and is finishing his first term as mayor. He is a practicing attorney and graduate of Vanderbilt Law School. He holds undergraduate degrees in business administration and economics.
He and his wife, Kelly, have been married for nearly 15 years and have two young children. He also serves as a Deacon and Sunday school teacher at First Presbyterian Church.
