From the Business Council of Alabama
MONTGOMERY—The board of directors of the Business Council of Alabama has endorsed U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks in the race for Alabama’s Fifth Congressional District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“Mo Brooks is a strong believer in the free enterprise system and understands that in order for the economy to grow, existing businesses need to be able to hire more workers without more burdensome federal regulations,” said Terry Kellogg, chairman of the BCA board of directors and president and CEO of BlueCross BlueShield of Alabama. “His commitment to job creation in north Alabama is why the board of directors is pleased to support his bid for reelection.”
Brooks was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010 and currently serves on the House Armed Services Committee, and the House Science, Space and Technology Committee. Prior to being elected to Congress, Brooks served on the Madison County Commission, was Madison County District Attorney and was elected four times to the Alabama House of Representatives.

The BCA is a non-partisan statewide business association representing the interests and concerns of nearly one million working Alabamians through its member companies and its partnership with the Chamber of Commerce Association of Alabama.
