Travis Hendrix has secured the backing of House Minority Leader Anthony Daniels, D-Huntsville, and Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin as he seeks to fill the House District 55 seat vacated by Fred Plump, who resigned after being federally charged in connection to a kickback scheme.
“I’m supporting Travis Hendrix because I know that he will always work hard to ensure that we build safe communities, secure educational resources, and elevate the voice of every resident that calls District 55 home,” Woodfin said in a release. “He has selflessly served our community for more than 15 years as a law enforcement officer, and I trust his ability to now lead with both compassion and conviction in the Alabama Legislature.”
Daniels said Hendrix is “the kind of community-bred leader we need in Montgomery to fight for District 55.”
“His strong connections and genuine commitment have positioned him to effectively advocate for his community’s rights,” Daniels said.
These endorsements come as a significant boost to the Hendrix campaign, further solidifying his position as a candidate who has garnered widespread support. Other prominent leaders who have joined in endorsing Hendrix include Fairfield City Council President Herman Canes Jr., the Jefferson County Chapter of the Alabama New South Coalition, DNC Member Josh Coleman, the Business Council of Alabama and Dr. Evelyn Nettles Hines, former principal of Ensley High School.
“I’m honored to have the support of these remarkable public servants who work every day to prepare our children for the future , keep our communities safe, and plan for smart growth across the state,” Hendrix said.
