COMMUNITY MOURNS PASSING OF MAYOR AZBILL

   The Town of Linden is without its leader.

   The community mourns the passing of Mayor Jim Azbill who died last Thursday, January 28, 2016, at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, from head injuries sustained in a fall at his Linden home.

   Mr. Azbill was first elected Mayor in 2002, and held the office until his death. He was most recently re-elected to another four-year term in 2014.

   Prior to his election as Mayor, Mr. Azbill served on the Board of Aldermen for the town. During his long tenure as a public servant, he also held positions on countless other boards and committees on the local, regional, and state level.
