Meadows Kicks AL House 74 Race into Overdrive

By Lee Hedgepeth

MONTGOMERY, AL—In an email distributed late last night, House District 74 candidate Charlotte Meadows’ campaign made it clear: “the election is barely over a month away, so it is time to kick things into overdrive!”

The special election, which is scheduled for October 8th, will be a race pitting the Republican leadership of Montgomery County against each other. With no Democrats qualifying to run, the contest comes down to three conservatives: Meadows, a former county board of education president; Heather Sellers, a former board of education vice president; and Dimitri Polizos, a county commissioner.

In the email, the campaign expresses the importance of canvassing, as well as phonebanking.

The Meadows campaign will be doing door-to-door campaigning in Dalraida this Saturday, meeting at Dalraida Elementary at 5:15. They also expressed that they will set be setting up a phonebanking center in their headquarters, as well as aiding volunteers in phonebanking remotely.

The campaign’s assertions that things are kicking in to high gear are clearly not without merit. In campaign finance disclosures filed last month, Meadows had more in her war chest than her opponents did—combined—and then some. As of the end of July, her primary political committee had raised over $113,000, while Sellers raised a net $33,000, and Polizos a (relatively) measly $13,000.

Finally, the email emphasized the Meadows’ use of “Campaign Captains,” volunteers who will not necessarily log a lot of office hours reaching out to folks, but will help in keeping a few core voters engaged and excited to vote in the special election.
