Rep. Johnny Mack Morrow kicks off campaign for State Senate District 6

State Rep. Johnny Mack Morrow of Red Bay has officially kicked off his campaign for State Senate District 6.
Morrow will be on the ballot for Alabama State Senate in the General Election Nov. 6. Morrow is a state representative, retired educator, devoted husband, a parent and a grandparent.
“I believe I can take my experience from the House of Representatives and my love for this area and do a better job in Senate District 6 that what is being done now,” said Morrow. “More than anything, what I hear from people in this district is that they want someone who will bring people together and be a problem-solver.”
In the Alabama House of Representatives, Morrow, along with three Republican lawmakers, co-founded the only bi-partisan organization in the legislature: The Rural Caucus. “We founded the Rural Caucus to do two things: put the needs of rural Alabama front and center in the legislature, and bring Democrats and Republicans together to focus on solving problems by working together,” said Morrow.
In addition to being one of the leading voices in the state legislature for rural Alabama, Morrow has been a constant supporter of public education, school safety and the Retirement Systems of Alabama.
“I promise that I will represent the views and wishes of the people of my district, as I always have done in the Alabama House of Representatives,” Morrow said. “I also vow to be accessible and accountable to the people that make up Senate District 6. I have always been the kind of legislator that the voters could reach and talk to. That will not change when I go to the Senate.”
As a conservative Democrat, Morrow has consistently voted pro-life, pro-second Amendment and pro-family values. As a member of the Alabama Legislature, Morrow has fought against attacks against public education and the Retirement System of Alabama. Since the passing of The Alabama Accountability Act in 2013, almost $8 million has been taken from public school systems in Senate District 6. He has fought against the further erosion of funding for the public school system by opposing charter schools.
“I look forward to the upcoming campaign, where I will offer the voters a clear choice on the issue of public education as well as other issues important to our quality of life,” Morrow said. “I am ready for voters to compare my record to the incumbent. When people look at my record, they will see that I have always put people before politics.
“Above all, I will work to bring other people together and put the focus back on solving real problems like improving our schools, creating good paying jobs, the opioid crisis, mental health funding and rebuilding our roads and bridges.”
