DuWayne Bridges endorses Todd Rauch in House District 38 race

The Alabama Statehouse in Montgomery, Alabama.

Todd Rauch, a candidate for state representative in District 38, was endorsed today by former District 38 State Rep. DuWayne Bridges.

“I am very excited to endorse Todd to be our next State Representative here in District 38” said Bridges. “After Todd’s time serving in the military he always knew that he would find other ways to serve. And we have all been able to witness that service to our communities, whether it has been volunteering to put up flagpoles for veterans, being an Opelika Chamber Ambassador or attending nearly 100 City Council and County Commission over the past 18 months, Todd is always doing something in our communities. I know that he will bring his never-ending energy, thoughtfulness and passion to get things done with him to Montgomery. More importantly he will always be right here, at home in the district, to meet with and work with the people he seeks to serve. I encourage everyone to make sure they vote for Todd Rauch in the June 5th Republican Primary.”

Todd thanked Bridges for the endorsement.

“DuWayne Bridges endorsement today helps me to realize that I am doing the right things in my campaign to be the next State Representative for District 38,” Rauch said.  “DuWayne served the people of the 38th with honor for 14 years and has been kind enough to spend time with me during this campaign to help introduce me to people all over the district. His words of encouragement today, speak volumes about his character and I am truly blessed to call him a friend.”

“I look forward to having the opportunity to follow in his footsteps in representing District 38,” Rauch concluded.

Former State Rep.DuWayne Bridges lives in Valley, Alabama.
