Bill Lamb announces his candidacy for state House

Bill Lamb is running as a Republican for Alabama House District 62.

Bill Lamb

Tuscaloosa County’s former CFO, Bill Lamb, announced Tuesday that he will seek the Republican nomination for the District 62 seat in the Alabama House of Representatives. The seat is being vacated by Rep. Rich Wingo, a Republican who has decided not to seek re-election.

“During my time as CFO, I was proud to see the County go from having to borrow money to meet payroll to being in a strong financial position with healthy budget reserves,” Lamb said. “That turnaround took teamwork and some difficult decisions, but it was what Tuscaloosa needed and our entire area benefits when Tuscaloosa County is in a healthier financial position.”

Lamb is a lifelong resident of Tuscaloosa and a graduate of the University of Alabama. He is well known for his service to the county and his record of turning a $1.5 million budget deficit into a healthy reserve with no long-term debt.

Lamb says that his financial expertise and dedication to public service will be an asset in working through the state’s complex dual-budget system.

“Government budgeting is an area that I am very familiar with and an area that I know that I can make a real impact on in the legislature,” Lamb said. “I am ready to roll up my sleeves and identify areas of wasteful spending and work toward ensuring that our General Fund and Education Trust Fund budgets are based on fiscally conservative principles. My priority will be ensuring that every tax dollar that the hardworking people of this state send to Montgomery will be spent in the most responsible way possible.”

Bill has been married to his wife, DuRhonda, for 36 years. They have four children. Their children formed the Lamb Family Violin Ensemble and have toured the nation performing at churches, events and ceremonies.

HD62, like all of Alabama’s legislative districts, will be reapportioned and redistricted ahead of the 2022 elections.
