The Alabama Forestry Association (AFA) announces its endorsement of Will Sellers for the Alabama Supreme Court.
Sellers was appointed to the Alabama Supreme Court by Governor Kay Ivey in May 2017. Prior to being appointed, Sellers practiced law in Montgomery for 28 years focusing on taxation, business organization and finance.
Sellers earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Hillsdale College and then went on to earn his Juris Doctorate from the University of Alabama. He also earned a Master of Laws in Taxation from New York University.
“Judge Sellers’ scholarly approach to his work on the bench has further confirmed his unwavering commitment to following the rule of law and ensuring that the judicial branch of government stays in its lane,” said AFA’s President and CEO, Chris Isaacson. “AFA is proud to endorse him for a second term on the Alabama Supreme Court.”
Sellers was a member of the Electoral College in 2004, 2008, 2012, and 2016. He was elected as Chairman of the Fair Ballot Commission in August 2014. He is active in his community and has even served as the community liaison with the International Officers School of Maxwell Air Force Base since 2014.
“Alabama’s forest product industry is a critical part of Alabama’s economy,” said Sellers. “When I was in private practice, I had a number of clients from large corporations to small timber owners, so I know firsthand how deep the roots of the timber industry are in Alabama. To have been endorsed for yet a second time by the Alabama Forestry Association is an honor. I’m deeply grateful for this strong show of support. I will continue to do my part to make certain Alabama courts follow the rule of law, so we have the most stable legal environment in the Nation.”
Sellers is seeking re-election to the Alabama Supreme Court in the Primary Election on March 5, 2024.
