Thursday, July 5, 2017 veteran State Legislator, Marcel Black (D-Tuscumbia), announced that he will not be running for his eighth term in the Alabama House of Representatives in 2018.
Representative said, “Serving the people of the Shoals as their representative in Montgomery has been a privilege and honor, and I will always be appreciative of the opportunity that they entrusted me with.”
Black said that he has considered his decision for a while and finally concluded that, “if you are beginning to seriously think about leaving Montgomery, it is probably time to do so. For me that time has come.”
