MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) – State Senator Bill Holtzclaw announced his intention to seek re-election to the Alabama Senate in the 2014 election on Monday.

Friends and supporters of Holtzclaw’s campaign are hosting a kickoff reception and fundraiser for him on August 27 at 6:00 p.m. at the Westin at Bridge Street Town Center in the Venice Ballroom, to which the public is invited.

“North Alabama is a unique and special place that contributes greatly to Alabama’s progress and growth, and representing the great people of Limestone and Madison Counties in the Alabama State Senate has been an honor,” said Senator Holtzclaw. “I am seeking re-election because we still have work to do: creating more economic development opportunities, reforming state government, and capitalizing off BRAC.”

Holtzclaw is Chairman of the Senate Veterans and Military Affairs committee and Chairman of the Joint Legislative Committee for Contract Review. He also serves as a member of Finance and Taxation General Fund; Small Business and Economic Development; Banking and Insurance; Children, Youth Affairs and Human Resources; Commerce, Transportation and Utilities; Education Policy; and Local Legislation No. 4, a newly-created Committee.

He has sponsored and passed legislation to provide additional resources and protection to military members, reform and strengthen DUI penalties, and streamline state government.
