With an open seat in the Alabama House awaiting a special runoff to effectively determine who will fill it, House District 16 is hotly contested.

Today, the Business Council of Alabama’s ProgressPAC announced its endorsement for Bryan Brinyark. The group said Brinyark has a commitment to its pro-jobs mission and a track record in public service. 

Brinyark has served as Centreville municipal judge for the City of Centreville since 2005 and served in the same capacity for the City of Brent and the Town of Woodstock. He  substitutes as a municipal judge for Tuscaloosa while working as a partner attorney with Brinyark & Frederick.
