State Senator Steve Livingston (R-Scottsboro) announced that he would re-run for his seat in the Alabama Senate this week.
“I want to continue the work I’ve started, bringing new jobs and industry to North Alabama and putting greater focus on the tech industry that’s so vital to our economy,” Livingston said. “We also have to protect the farmers in the rural parts of the district, and grow the agriculture industry that is so vital to our state.”
Livingston has served in the Legislature since 2014 when he was elected a State Senator after being a businessman for 30 years. He is the owner of The Fuel Center incorporated which distributes Chevron gasoline and lubricants.
He has worked in the Scottsboro-Jackson County Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Alabama, and the United Way board of directors. Livingston is a graduate of the University of Alabama.
He is a member of six committees in the Senate, including the Transportation and Energy Committee, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee and the Finance and Taxation General Fund Committee.
Livingston’s district encompasses DeKalb, Jackson and Madison County. He currently represents district 8 in the Alabama Senate. He is running unopposed in the Republican Primary set for next summer. The general election is set for November 2018.
