Robin Litaker, a former teacher and principal, has qualified to run as a Republican in the 7th Congressional District, the seat held by Congresswoman Rep. Terri Sewell, D-Selma.
“I think it’s time the people of AL7 had someone representing them who wanted to change the status quo, and help AL 7 reach its full potential,” Litaker stated. “When I’m representing the 7th District in Congress, I’ll work for the people of the District and the State of Alabama, not the special interests in Washington and Montgomery.”
A former Alabama Teacher of the year in 1997, Litaker said she wanted to end the Department of Education and put money directly into the hands of teachers.
“As a former teacher and principal, I know that education is the key to success in life, and I also know just how much is wrong with our current education bureaucracy,” Litaker said. “I want to end the Department of Education and put more money directly into the classrooms, so parents and teachers can use it to give our kids the education they need—not what unaccountable bureaucrats say they need.”
Litaker founded the Alabama Conference of Educators and served as its President and CEO. She has lived in Homewood, part of District 7, for over 30 years.
