Governor Kay Ivey on Thursday, following the passing of Clanton Mayor Billy Joe Driver, issued the following statement:
“Today, the state of Alabama lost a valued public servant of many years, Mayor Billy Joe Driver. After his battle with COVID-19, Mayor Driver passed on to his eternal home. He will truly be missed in his home of Clanton, but also by many of us across the state. I offer my heartfelt prayers to his loved ones, friends and the city of Clanton in their tremendous time of loss.”
Governor Ivey will authorize the city of Clanton to fly flags at half-staff on the day of interment. The governor’s flag directive will be sent at a later time.
