Decatur Mayor Tab Bowling endorsed Parker Moore, a Republican candidate for Alabama State House of Representatives in District 4.

“We need someone who will be a positive voice for all citizens within the district,” Bowling said in the endorsement. “We need a conservative who will represent our traditional values and stand firm for our beliefs. I’ve considered these issues, which is why I am supporting Parker Moore. Parker has a servant’s heart and I know he will serve District 4 with honestly and integrity.”

“I’m a lifelong resident of this district,” Moore continued. “I grew up here and I just finished building a house here. I’m committed to our area and I want to do what I can to ensure that we continue moving forward. I’m excited to receive the endorsement of Mayor Bowling. He understands that we need a leader who can make the tough decisions while also working with the other members of our legislative delegation in a manner that is constructive, not divisive.”

Parker is currently on a “Walk to Win” door tour of District 4, where he has knocked on thousands of doors, speaking to residents of the district everyday about his platform and the conservative principles he promises that he will fight for in Montgomery.

Parker Moore is a resident of Decatur, attends Decatur First Presbyterian Church, where he serves as an elected Elder. Moore also serves on the Huntsville Hospital Foundation Advisory Board and serves in numerous other civic and community leadership roles in North Alabama.

Parker Moore is running against local businessmanTom Fredricks in the special Republican primary runoff on Tuesday, Feb. 27. The winner will then face Juanita Allen Healy in the special general election on May 15.

The District 4 seat was vacated when state Rep. Mickey Hammon, R-Decatur, pleaded guilty on fraud charges in federal court. Hammon is a former House majority leader.

The special election is just for the remainder of Hammon’s term, which ends in November. The candidates are also running in the 2018 election. The major party primaries are on June 5, 2018.
