Governor Kay Ivey reappointed Jerria Martin as a Executive Board Member of the Alabama Public Library Services

Martin will serve a four-year term as a representative of the Seventh Congressional District. Her term expires December 20, 2026.

Martin, the executive director  of the Drug Free Communities of Dallas County, was appointed by Ivey in September to fill out the remainder of term for Nancy Sewell, who died June 10. 

“It was an honor to step in and finish Nancy Sewell’s term, but being appointed to my own 4 year term was quite humbling,” Martin said.

“This Board oversees all 200 plus of the State’s Public Libraries. We make big decisions every meeting as we aid and advise our statewide team. I am thrilled for the opportunity to continue serving our great State.”

Ivey wrote Martin a letter of the reappointment and expectations of Martin, a co-President of Selma Rotary Club.

“As one of my appointees, you will be making important decisions that direct the citizens of Alabama,” Ivey wrote in a letter to Martin.

“I have made honesty and integrity a priority in my Administration and I know that you will embody these two virtues while serving the state of Alabama.”
