Friday, March 3, 2017, the National Associations of Secretaries of State presented an award to former State Representative Steve Flowers (R) for his work as a legislator and for his work as a columnist reporting on Alabama politics.
Secretary of State John H. Merrill (R) said that he is excited to announce that Flowers was receiving this award. This award is given by Secretaries of State across the nation to recognize people who have contributed extensively to the elections process for the state or nation. Sec. Merrill said that Mr. Flowers is an obvious candidate for this award.
Former Representative Flowers served in the Alabama Legislature for sixteen years representing Pike County. During his tenure in the legislature he was voted the “Most Ethical Member of the House” in 1988, the “Most Outstanding Freshman House Member” also in 1988, and the “Most Outstanding Member of the Alabama House of Representatives” in 1992. Flowers is a native of Troy.
Following his career as an elected Alabama Representative, Mr. Flowers has spoken to National news audiences, both through video and written publications. His popular weekly column is carried by The Alabama Political Reporter as well as other publications across the State.
The award ceremony was held on Friday in the State Capitol’s Old House Chamber.
