Todd Strange (born c. 1944) is an American politician and businessman who served as the 56th mayor of Montgomery, Alabama.[3] Strange won a special election and took office on March 24, 2009 after his predecessor, Democrat Bobby Bright, was elected to the United States House of Representatives.[4] Although municipal elections in Montgomery are nonpartisan, Strange is a Republican.

Before becoming mayor, Strange served as chairman of the Montgomery County Commission for nearly five years.[3] He also served as president, CEO, and co-owner of Blount Strange Automotive Group.[4]
