AL Senator Scott Beason says he won’t seek re-election
State Senator Scott Beason, widely considered one of Alabama’s leading and most conservative legislators, announced Friday that he would not be seeking a third term in the Alabama Senate.
“I have always been humbled by the faith the people of the 17th District placed in me. Very few people thought we could win this Senate seat eight years ago, but thanks to support of the people we did. I am very pleased with all we have accomplished together,” Beason said.
“I set out with the goal of putting conservative principles into practice in Alabama,” Beason added. “Together, we have passed landmark legislation in the face of overwhelming opposition. We have upheld the rule of law, made Alabama one of the best places in the world to do business, and created an economic environment that has allowed Alabama to weather the storm of the Obama economy better than many other states.”
