State Sen. Clyde Chambliss will seek re-election next year

State Sen. Clyde Chambliss, R-Montgomery, announced that he would seek re-election for his seat in the Alabama Senate for 2018.

The statement, released Thursday, touts Chambliss as a “strong, steadying force in the legislature ad takes an objective, conservative approach to budgets and legislation.”

Chambliss serves on five committees in the state senate and sits as a co-chair of the Joint Legislative Task Force on Budget Reform. He said in a statement that he would use his “consensus building approach in Montgomery to resolve the fiscal issues that our state faces.”

“We’ve passes the budgets earlier in the session, avoided pro-ration, and advanced the discussion on fiscal responsibility but there is still much work to get where we need to be,” Chambliss said.

Chambliss joins a majority of other senators in seeking re-election. While Chambliss and others are running for election, others have decided to end their time in the Legislature.

Among them include veteran senators who have served for a long time in the Senate. Most recently, Sen. Quinton Ross, D-Montgomery, vacated his seat to serve as the president of Alabama State University.
