MONTGOMERY—The man who hopes to replace Bryan Taylor in the Alabama Senate 30  held his official campaign kickoff Tuesday night.

Harris Garner, who was born and raised district, is ready to step into the seat being vacated by the freshman incumbent.

Garner, reported $16,835.00 in October contributions from 130 donors. He has a total of $19,253.42 in cash on hand, and hopes to bring his business experience and hometown values to the Alabama Senate:

“We are generating support from all over the district,” Garner said Friday. “I was encouraged to get in this race because I’m from here.”

In fact, unlike Taylor, who moved into the district to run for office, Garner has lived in the area his entire life, with the exception of his years of service with the U.S. Navy.

“My friends and family live here.  They believe in me, and their contributions show that,” said Garner.

Garner is the founder and owner of Garner Electric, which he and his wife Cathy started nearly 20 years ago.

“We built this business from the ground up with our own, two hands. We started in the family home and we now have more than 30 employees.”

Garner is the President of the Millbrook Area Chamber of Commerce and, according to his campaign, has been active in helping the area create jobs and grow small businesses.
