MONTGOMERY — The 20,000-member Alabama Retired State Employees Association in June announced that Earnest Tate of Selma has been re-elected to serve a 3-year term on its board of directors.

“Mr. Tate was elected and now re-elected by his fellow retirees to serve in this important leadership position, an honor that recognizes his leadership, experience and dedication,” ARSEA Executive Director Liane Kelly said. “We are lucky to have board members of Mr. Tate’s caliber, and even luckier that he is willing to continue devoting the significant time commitment that it takes to serve. ARSEA is proud to have him in our leadership.”

Tate retired as Selma’s chief of police in 2002 after 36 years of service with the Selma Police Department.

Since his retirement, Tate has been active in ARSEA and the Dallas County Chapter. In 2006 his efforts led to the funding of a long sought cost of living increase for more than 100 city of Selma retirees.

He was elected in 2007 to serve his first term as the District 10 Representative on the ARSEA Board of Directors. In 2009, he was elected as the chairman of the group’s Friends of Retirees Political Action Committee District 10 Advisory Committee.
