On Sunday, U.S. Rep. Jerry Carl (R-Mobile) made his membership to the U.S. House of Representatives official when he was sworn in for the 117th Congress.
The former Mobile County Commissioner fills the seat vacated by former U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-Fairhope) after a decisive win over Democratic nominee James Averhart in November.
Carl stressed that he was not taking the new role lightly in an announcement following the official swearing-in ceremony.
I’m excited to be part of this incredible group of conservative leaders! We are ready to get to work. #al01 #alpolitics https://t.co/Qsbr9F4GvP

“I’m honored to serve the people of Alabama’s First Congressional District in Congress,” Carl said in a statement. “South Alabamians have entrusted me with the responsibility of fighting for them and being their voice in our nation’s Capitol. I’m thankful for the outpouring of prayers and support. I take this responsibility seriously, and I look forward to serving you in the 117th Congress.”
