Mary Scott Hunter has announced her decision to seek election for the vacant Alabama Senate Seat in District 7 Alabama in lieu of the Lt. Governor’s seat.
“The people of my district know me as a fighter, as a wife and mom of three children who attend public school, and a woman of faith,” said Hunter. “They have seen me tested and know the quality of my character. I love this state, and I love the place I call home, Madison County, Alabama. I’ve decided to enter the race for Senate District 7 because it’s where I can best serve the people.”
Senate District 7 is entirely in Madison County and is being vacated by Senator Paul Sanford. Further discussing her decision that she first made public on the Dale Jackson Show early this morning, Hunter said:
“I’m not a rookie in all of this, and I’m coming into this race with many allies and knowing where the snakes hide. There is much work ahead. I intend to use my experience serving on the Alabama State Board of Education to support efforts at all levels to improve public education from Pre-K through PhD. Good jobs are everything, and to get them we must prepare and lay the groundwork in education, infrastructure, health care, and other important areas. I look forward to the challenge.”
