GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT)- Wednesday night at 7 p. m. a judge will swear in Michael Johnson as Marshall County’s new revenue commissioner. The office has been vacant since the resignation of Joey Masters. Johnson will serve out the final year of Master’s term.
“I’m extremely anxious to get started there,” Johnson told us back in July. “There is a lot of work to do. There is a lot to learn. It’s an enormous job and enormous responsibility. I’m anxious to get going.”
Johnson won the Republican nomination for the position back in the summer. Since there isn’t a Democrat running against him in the general election, Governor Bentley went ahead and appointed Johnson to the spot.
He will serve out the final year of Master’s term and then next October will take the oath again to begin serving his own elected term.
