Timothy L. Ragland became mayor of the City of Talladega in a history-making runoff election on November 4, 2019. Mayor Ragland defeated the incumbent mayor by a margin of just 23 votes, making him the first African – American and youngest mayor in Talladega in the last century at 29 years old

 A native of Talladega, Alabama, Mayor Ragland is a graduate of Faulkner University’s Thomas Goode Jones School of Law, Auburn University at Montgomery, and Marion Military Institute. Mayor Ragland served for eight years in the United States Army Reserve as a military policeman.

 In his first year in office, Mayor Ragland has successfully led Talladega during the once-in-a-lifetime pandemic, an economic crisis, catastrophic weather, and vitriolic political discourse. Despite these unique trials, Mayor Ragland advances a community-centered plan that addresses the city’s most urgent issues and puts Talladega on course to reach its fullest potential.

 He is a proud member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. Mayor Ragland and his life partner Chelsea are the proud parents of one daughter.
