Midfield City Government
After the residents of Midfield voted to become a City on Oct. 7, 1953, campaigning to fill the Mayor and Aldermen positions began immediately.
In April of 1954 the first Midfield City Officials were elected. The first Mayor of Midfield was Earl L. Worthington. He served only three months and resigned because his boss made him choose between his paying job (Manager of Auto Movies No. 1) or his position as Mayor (which didn’t pay). After his resignation Bill Waldrop was selected by the City Council to become the Mayor. Floyd Davis replaced Waldrop on the City Council.
