MONTGOMERY – Sen. Quinton Ross, D-Montgomery, announced today he plans to seek re-election to the Alabama State Senate.

Ross currently represents District 26 in Montgomery, a position he has held since 2002.

“I’m thankful to have been nominated for the position of president of ASU and to have been selected one of the top-three finalists for the position.  I thank God for the opportunity and give Him all the glory. I have been blessed with great support from my family, my friends and my constituents.  I look forward to serving my district with the same commitment and enthusiasm that I have since 2002,” Ross said.
