TRUSSVILLE — The Alabama chapter of the Associated General Contractors political action committee recently announced its support for Joe Freeman for the Alabama House of Representatives District 44 seat.
The seat is open because of the retirement of Rep. Arthur Payne. John Amari and Danny Garrett are also running for the seat. All three running for the seat are from Trussville.
“It’s a real honor to have the strength of the AGC supporting my campaign,” Freeman said in a press release. “Contractors are the backbone of the Alabama economy.”
Chris Williams, director of government affairs for the AGC, said Freeman’s background in finance and knowledge of state government will represent District 44 well.
“The eastern area of Jefferson County is experiencing rapid growth,” Williams said. “Our members have projects throughout the area. It’s important for the AGC to support candidates that understand our motto of ‘Skill, Responsibility and Integrity’ means everything to us.”
District 44 includes Clay, Pinson, Trussville and part of northeast Jefferson County. Primaries are June 3.
