During their September 2, 2014 regular meeting, the Burlington City Council announced the selection of David R. Huffman to the position of City Attorney.

He has been in private legal practice in Alamance County for over 25 years.
Of his appointment Mr. Huffman says, “I appreciate the citizens of Burlington having allowed me to serve as a councilman and mayor pro tem, I am also appreciative of the city council for this opportunity to continue public service as city attorney. I look forward to these new challenges.”
Mr. Huffman will assume his role of Burlington City Attorney on October 1, 2014. Before this date, he will resign from his position of Mayor Pro Tem of the Burlington City Council. The City Council will discuss the matter of filling the vacancy created by Mayor Pro Tem's departure from the Council during upcoming meetings.
