Commissioner-Elect Lee Allen was born and raised in Madison. It is believed that he is the youngest ever Board of Commissioners member elected in Madison County. He is a man who wears many hats: farmer, former professional-golfer, golf coach, husband, father, and now Commissioner-Elect.

Allen decided to run for office after an issue arose with the dirt road he and his family live on. He believes the best way to make change is to be the person either voting on or writing the laws.

Governor Deal already sent over a signed oath to Commissioner- Elect Allen and he will be sworn in in mid-December.
