The Alabama Forestry Association announced last week that it has endorsed Steve Marshall for a second full term as attorney general in the 2022 election.
“Steve has done an exceptional job during his first term as Attorney General,” said AFA President and CEO Chris Isaacson. “He is committed to preserving the rights of landowners, fighting corruption, and defending against government overreach. Steve supports AFA’s values, and AFA is proud to support him in his bid for a second term.”
The Alabama Forestry Association said that Marshall played a critical role in the successful 2018 U.S. Supreme Court Dusky Gopher Frog decision. Striking a delicate balance between protecting critical habitat of endangered species while preserving private property rights.
In his first term, Marshall fought to preserve conservative values, and defended against threats to our public safety and political corruption.
“I’m honored to receive the endorsement of the Alabama Forestry Association,” said Marshall. “While representing Alabama landowners and businesses in the Forestry industry, AFA stands for the same conservative values and principles that I have fought for and will continue fighting for as your Attorney General to make our state strong and prosperous.”
The Alabama Forestry Association is one of the largest state forestry associations in the country with membership that includes forest products manufacturers, landowners, loggers, wood dealers, foresters, consultants, and others involved in forestry. AFA is dedicated to protecting and improving the business, regulatory and legal environment for landowners and forest business owners to ensure profitable and sustainable operations.
Forests cover more than two-thirds of the state and provide the raw material for Alabama’s second-largest manufacturing industry. Forestry provides a 27.7 billion dollar total economic output to the state’s economy.
Marshall was appointed Attorney General by Gov. Robert Bentley in 2017 after Luther Strange was appointed to the U.S. Senate. Marshall was elected in his own right in 2018. Marshall was the longtime district attorney in Marshall County.
The Alabama Republican primary election will be on May 24, 2022.
