The people of Alabama have lost confidence in their elected officials. The continued political scandals and government corruption have damaged the reputation of our state. We must be dedicated to restoring integrity and reasonable debate in government or risk creating an environment intolerable of new ideas that can take Alabama to greater heights. The people of Alabama and District 32 needs pragmatic leadership from our state senator. We must restore the state legislature to a place of high ideals and distinguished policy debate. We cannot afford to let our politicians divide us up into groups and subgroups for the sole purpose of winning elections and maintaining power.
