    JEFFCO Commissioner David Carrington

    in Current Events

    Jefferson County Commissioner David Carrington talks with us about what's going on in Jefferson County.


    David Carrington is now serving in his second term on the Jefferson County Commission.  He was first elected to the Commission in November 2010, after serving on the Vestavia Hills City Council for six years, four of which as its president.  During his tenure on the council, from 2004 to 2010, the city experienced significant improvements in its financial performance, strategically purchased land for economic development and constructed a new state-of-the art community library and four Olympic-sized community athletic fields.


    Immediately after being sworn into office as a county commissioner, David was elected by his fellow commissioners to serve as the Commission President.  In this capacity, David played a key role in developing and executing the financial strategy that led to Jefferson County exiting bankruptcy more than a year ahead of schedule and saving its citizens billions of dollars in future debt and interest payments. 


    David was re-elected to the County Commission in November 2014 and now chairs the Commission’s Finance, Information Technology and Business Development Committee, where he has the opportunity to focus his entrepreneurial energies on economic development and job creation.  


    Professionally, David is President of RacingUSA.com, the world’s most frequently shopped, independently-owned NASCAR store.


    He and his wife Sonia are active members of Shades Mountain Baptist Church and have two sons, two granddaughters and five grandsons.

    Talking with local acclaimed artist Don Stewart

    in Art

    Don Stewart is a local treasure that creates amazing composite art. We'll talk to him about leaving a medical career to follow his passion in Art, where he gets his ideas, and take calls from our audience.


    Don Stewart received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Art at Birmingham-Southern College in 1981, paying his way with a nightclub act as a comic ventriloquist. Initially he enrolled in art classes as a change of pace from a rigorous premedical curriculum. Soon, however, he was exposed to the idea of composite imagery, and began exploring techniques in ballpoint drawing - even when a professor refused to allow the pen in his studio.


    Don continued to pursue artistic interests as a hobby during medical training at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. After receiving his M.D. in 1985, Dr. Stewart  completed an internship in surgery at the Mayo Clinic, but the lifestyle of a surgical resident clashed with his creative side. By year’s end, Don opted to discontinue his medical studies, after accepting awards for both short fiction and poetry, and publishing his first two composite drawings.


    The author of two books, he currently limits his medical practice to disorcers of the funny bone.
