Alabama House District 94 Candidates
Election day will be upon us tomorrow and this year it is especially important that we choose the right candidates to send to the Alabama Legislature. The media tends to focus on local candidates and the Governors race but miss the point that the laws the Sheriff enforces or the District Attorney prosecutes are first made by the Legislators that we elect to represent us in Montgomery.
