William Smith Goes to Republican Convention

William Smith, a Florence attorney, former Lauderdale County Commissioner, and Republican nominee for Lauderdale County Probate Judge, will be attending the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa Bay, Florida, August 27-30. Smith will be attending the 2012 convention as an Alternate Delegate for Rick Santorum. Four years ago, he attended the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota as an Alternate Delegate for Mike Huckabee.

William has held a number of leadership positions in the Shoals area including serving as president of organizations such as the University of North Alabama National Alumni Association, Lauderdale County Bar Association, and the Tennessee Valley Historical Society. He is a member of the Shoals Chamber of Commerce, Rogersville Chamber of Commerce, Florence Rotary Club, Lauderdale County Cattlemen’s Association, and is a board member of the Lauderdale County Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) Advisory Board. William and his wife, Laura, are active members of Highland Baptist Church where he has served as youth basketball coach, discipleship leader, and international missions worker.

Smith’s family roots in Lauderdale County date back to the 1820s where his forefathers and ancestors were farmers, soldiers, and some of the earliest settlers in the Greenhill and Killen communities. A fifth generation Lauderdale County resident, William is a product of the public education system, and a graduate of both the University of North Alabama and Cumberland School of Law of Samford University in Birmingham.


William is also the Republican candidate for Lauderdale County Probate Judge. He has proved himself and his value to the community time after time. We're extremely happy to endorse William Smith in his candidacy and hope he's able to serve the residents of Lauderdale for years to come.
