MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Governor Bob Riley announced that he has appointed Mobile County District Attorney John Tyson to serve as commander of the Task Force on Illegal Gambling.
The announcement took place at the State Capitol.
"I believe John Tyson is ideally suited for the job. First and foremost, he is committed to enforcing the law. Period. As Mobile County's DA for the past 16 years, he has earned a reputation for integrity, tenacity, and courage", stated Gov. Riley.
Tyson was appointed to the position of Mobile County DA in 1994 by Governor Jim Folsom and was elected to continue his service as DA in 1998 and 2004.
"I am honored to be joining the Task Force as Commander. Much is at stake for the people of Alabama in this fight. I love Alabama too much to see it repeat the history of Phoenix City. And I will see to it that Alabama's laws against illegal gambling are enforced – everywhere, in every community, because no one is above the law", said Tyson.
