Jeff has had tremendous success during his two terms on City Council. He has a track record for keeping his promises and creating reform by bringing people together. He approaches everyone with respect and statesmanship. He is not afraid to reach across party lines, and he is not afraid to fight even in Washington for the needs of the people of District 32. Here are just a few of the projects Jeff has worked on as City Councilman.
Canal Road Traffic
As a city councilman he helped build relationships in Montgomery to secure widening of Canal Road, with another East Bound lane coming in late 2017. During his tenure as City Councilman he’s lead efforts towards great improvements on Hwy 161 including the addition of a new turn lane to allow traffic to flow more freely all the way to the Wharf. In addition he has worked to start the process of a Cross Island Parkway, working with officials on purchasing the land from Canal Road half way through the Gulf State Park. Jeff is a leader in the effort to create a new bridge for evacuation and to ease traffic on 161. Jeff believes these infrastructure improvements are just one small way to help the every day life and safety of Baldwin County residents.
Leave Only Footprints Campaign
Jeff Boyd has a deep love for the beautiful beaches and wildlife unique to Orange Beach. As City Councilman he’s worked hard to maintain the area’s beauty and greatest asset so that the community can enjoy it to it’s fullest.
Jeff Boyd has been on the frontlines, leading the community to make Orange Beach great again. He rallied the community to get involved in the Leave Only Footprints campaign, which coordinated city, state, business, and individual efforts and resources for recycling, protection of sea turtle and other environmentally friendly practices island-wide.
Boyd has recently been in the news for his passion and fight regarding the extremely short federal Red Snapper season. Beginning with a visit to Washington, D.C. to meet with NOAA and members of Congress and Senate, Jeff Boyd was the catalyst behind the movement to extend the season of the popular game fish. With a great team effort by Congressman Bradley Byrne, Senator Luther Strange, Senator Richard Shelby, Governor Kay Ivey, and Commissioner Chris Blankenship, the team effort proved to be a success. The result extended the popular Red Snapper fishing season from 3 to 39 days. Here is the letter Jeff courageously drafted to President Trump’s Secretary Wilbur L. Ross:
Through Jeff’s follow up and persistence, this letter became a resolution which is now successfully in effect!
In addition to his time on the City Council, Jeff has proven business success which will help him create jobs and improve our local economy. He’s served on numerous community boards and ministries.
