Today, Republican state Rep. Tim Wadsworth announces that he will seek a second term to the Alabama State House, District 14. House District 14 includes Cordova, Parrish, Goodsprings, Oakman, Townley, Carbon Hill, Kansas, Eldridge and Nauvoo in Walker County. It includes Lynn, parts of Double Springs, Arley, Addison, Upshaw, Helicon, Ashridge, and Nesmith in Winston County and Corner and Bagley in Jefferson County.

House District 14 has 19 elementary, middle and high schools and 20 volunteer fire and rescue squads.

Wadsworth cited his conservative record, integrity, his openness and transparent approach. He has placed a priority on helping rural towns and cities. He cites his ability to get things done for his district and the State of Alabama. The above are the issues that he hoped voters would consider when evaluating his service to the district. He has used social media and personal contacts to deliver his message to his district and to inform voters on what is going on in his district, Montgomery and Alabama.

We’ve made a lot of progress in the last few years in cleaning up Montgomery. Since 2014, many elected officials have resigned or have been convicted.

“Standing up for what is right has been important and will continue,” he said. “I also ran to protect our conservative values. My voting record was ranked in the Top 3 most conservative voting records in Montgomery. I stand for protecting our Second Amendment rights and support our public education system, which should be controlled locally. My record is clear that I have voted strong on these issues.

“Creating an environment that is pro jobs is important to bringing in more jobs and economic development in District 14 and Alabama. Currently, Winston County, Walker County and Alabama have record low unemployment rates. Over the last 12 months, the unemployment rate has dropped from 6.2 percent to 3.5 percent, which is the lowest on record in Alabama. No county has double digit employment (never before).“

Wadsworth was born and raised in Winston County. He attended Meek High School, Walker College and after graduating from the University of Alabama with a B.S. in accounting and a master’s in tax accounting, he obtained a CPA license in Tennessee. Then he completed law school at Cumberland School of Law and has practiced in a North Alabama for more than 31 years. He understands rural Alabama. All towns and cities in the 14th District are rural.

Tim and his wife Virginia have been married 29 years. They have three children and one grandchild. The Wadsworths attend Bethel Baptist Church.

“I hope the people of the 14th District will give me an opportunity to serve them again for another four years,” Wadsworth said. “I respectfully ask for your vote and support over the next few months and I will make sure your vote counts. I have always been open with communication. My cell number is 205-712- 1792. If you have an issue or need an answer or if you would just like to assist my campaign, please call. Your voice is important.“
