Alton Craft serves as mayor of the City of Oxford. Before he was elected mayor in 2016, Craft worked as the payroll clerk and spent over 30 years as the finance director. Since his time in office, he believes that the greatest accomplishment serving the citizens of Oxford has been improving the quality of life for all residents, improved public safety - especially through the construction and establishment of the East Alabama Metro Crime Center - and hiring the right employees. Craft believes that issues that are important to Oxford are financial stability, retaining employees, and honoring the National Day of Prayer.
