Our program today: Greg Cochran – Alabama League of Municipalities
Greg Cochran attended the university of North Alabama in Florence where he majored in Political Science and Psychology. During the mid-1980’s he began working on political campaigns as a volunteer before joining the staff of the Medical Association of the State of Alabama where he represented the interest of Alabama physicians.
Since 1996 Greg has served as the Director of Intergovernmental Relations for the Alabama League of Municipalities. In that position he is responsible for both federal and state legislation. The league was established in 1935 as a voluntary association of Alabama’s cities and towns and is the primary lobbying advocate for Alabama municipalities.
He is also president of the Alabama Municipal Funding Corporation which was developed by the league to assist municipal members with the refinancing of debt and funding local projects through low interest loans.
