Clyde Chambliss to run for Senate District 30

Published 12:31pm Friday, January 17, 2014

Former Autauga County Commission Chairman and current Prattville City Councilman Clyde Chambliss (R-Prattville) qualified with the state Republican Party Jan. 15 for state Senate District 30.

Sen. Bryan Taylor (R-Prattville) has elected to not run for re-election in Senate District 30.

“What I want to do is to use my experience as a small business owner and my experience as a locally elected official to bring new jobs to our state and to bring a fiscally sound approach to balancing our budgets,” Chambliss said in a release. “The people of Autauga, Elmore, Chilton, Coosa and Tallapoosa counties deserve someone in Montgomery that is a lifelong resident of the district and has been actively involved in making our area and our state the best that we can be.”

Senate District 30 has been redrawn to encompass all of Autauga and Coosa counties, half of Elmore County and part of Chilton and Tallapoosa counties.

It is a 54 percent new area from the way it was drawn from 2002-2010.

“I’m glad to be running as a Republican for this district,” Chambliss said. “I plan to run a clean race on the issues that people care about, economic development, a world class education system and keeping our fiscal house in order as a state.”

The primary election will be June 4.

No member of the Democratic party has qualified for the race at this time, according to the release.
