  • Nation’s Longest Serving Legislative Secretary Dies

    McDowell Lee, former secretary of the Alabama Senate, passed away last Thursday. Mac Lee, or Mr. Lee as I called him, was the longest serving clerk or secretary in America’s state legislatures. Before he retired in early 2011, Lee served as secretary for 47 years. He was first elected to the position in 1963.
