Alabama Supreme Court Justice Tommy Bryan announced Thursday that he is running for re-election.

Bryan, who has been on the state bench since 2013, said he wants to continue to serve the people and the state of Alabama.

“As an Alabama Supreme Court Justice, I treat our citizens fairly, interpret our laws justly, and I seek God’s wisdom and strength to serve with integrity,” he said. “I want to continue to bring leadership and judgment that the people of Alabama can trust. Our great state deserves a judicial system that is fair and balanced, and that is my priority as an Alabama Supreme Court Justice.”

Bryan has the endorsement of the Alabama Trucking Association, Manufacture Alabama, and Alabama FarmPAC, the Alabama Farmers Federation’s political action committee.

Bryan was an assistant attorney general for Alabama, serving as an associate general counsel for Alabama’s environmental department. In 2004, he was elected to the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals and was re-elected in 2010. In 2012, Bryan was elected to the Alabama Supreme Court.
