Tuesday, August 8, 2017, State Rep. Becky Nordgren (R-Gadsden) announced that she will be a candidate for the House Distict 29 seat she has held since 2010.

House District 29 includes portions of Etowah, Calhoun, and DeKalb counties.

Rep. Nordgren said, “Creating jobs, restoring honesty and integrity to State government, and supporting President Donald Trump’s policies on the state level have been among my top priorities during my service in the Alabama House.  Since taking control of the Legislature in 2010, Republicans have implemented many commonsense state government reforms, and I’ll continue changing the way Montgomery operates if my friends and neighbors across the district allow me to continue serving them.”

Nordgren was first elected to the House in 2010 and re-elected in 2014.  Nordgren currently serves as Acting Chair of the House Economic Development and Tourism Committee, and she holds seats on the House Health Committee and the State Government Committee.

Nordgren cited several important pieces of legislation that she successfully passed.  Among them are a measure that streamlines the process of collecting child support, a bill that allows a State income tax deduction for health savings accounts, and legislation that created the Alabama Study Commission on Tick Borne Illness and funds state grants to combat such illnesses.  In addition, Nordgren also passed protective legislation that prevents victims of domestic violence from having their addresses published on public voter lists.

She is a member of the Autism Council, Women in Government, the Etowah County 4-H board, and the Alabama Women’s Commission.  Nordgren is also a member of the Alabama Republican Party, the Etowah County Republican Executive Committee, and the Etowah County Republican Women’s Association.
