Bryant, AL – Retired firefighter Tommy Hanes (R) will seek a third term in the Alabama House of Representatives, he announced today.
“I am proud of the work we have accomplished in the Alabama legislature. The people of District 23 know I am a man of my word and will always stand for them,“ Hanes said.
Hanes is consistently recognized as one of the most conservative members of the Alabama legislature, recently ranked among the top by the Alabama Policy Institute and the American Conservative Union. He is a stalwart who fights against tax increases, government overreach, and restricting our personal liberties. Hanes received 65.1% of the Republican Primary vote in 2018.
“I am proud of my record these last seven years. Alabama needs strong and consistent leadership that will protect our Alabama conservative values and protect our personal liberties,” Hanes added.
During his tenure, Hanes has been an advocate for legislation that would improve public safety. He is the proud sponsor of The Kelsey Smith Act, which requires cell phone companies to turn over location data to law enforcement if the person’s life is in immediate danger.
In addition to serving on the House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee, Hanes is a member of the Agriculture and Forestry Committee and the Children and Senior Advocacy Committee.
He and his wife Rhonda, who have been married for over 43 years, make their home in Bryant. They are the proud parents of two daughters, Laura and Amber, as well as having two grandchildren, Thomas and Natalee.
In addition to Scottsboro, District 23 covers the Jackson County communities of Stevenson, Hollywood, Section, Pisgah, and Bridgeport, as well as Powell, in DeKalb County.
