HUNTSVILLE, Alabama - Brenda Martin, who has spent the past five years trying to fulfill Mayor Tommy Battle's "One City, One Vision" campaign pledge, is retiring from the city.
Martin plans to step down from her position as multicultural affairs director on April 27. Kenneth Anderson, currently dean of humanities and social sciences at Calhoun Community College, has been tapped to replace her.
"Servant-leaders know when to pass the torch," Martin, 65, told a packed City Hall news conference Tuesday. "It's my time."
