House Majority Leader Ledbetter will seek re-election

House Majority Leader Nathaniel Ledbetter, R-Rainsville, announced on Tuesday that he will seek his second term as a Representative in the Legislature.

Ledbetter said he already began the process of changing State government to restore “honesty” and “integrity” but said it will “take time to complete.”

“I have worked to provide the men, women, and children of my district with better schools, more jobs and opportunities, and a state government that reflects their own morals and values, and I’ll continue that effort if given a new term in office,” Ledbetter said.

Ledbetter currently represents the 24th district in the Alabama House of Representatives and has served on the position since 2014. In a press release form his campaign, he said he was the first freshman Representative in modern history to hold the rank of majority leader.

Ledbetter also serves as a member of the House Rules Committee and the House Committee on Transportation Utilities and Infrastructure.

Prior to serving as a representative, Ledbetter served as the Mayor of Rainsville. Prior to that he was a member of the Rainsville City Council.
