Special Election set for Alabama House District 30
Most of you probably saw that Representative Blaine Galliher (R-Gadsden) has resigned his legislative seat in order to become the Legislative Director for Governor Bentley. Galliher, former chairman of the powerful Rules Committee in the House, should do a good job in this position as he works to improve the Governor’s effectiveness with the Legislature.
The Governor has now set the timing of the special election to fill Blaine’s open seat. The close of qualifying for parties is August 24, 2012 with the Primary Election set for Tuesday, October 23, 2012. In the event a runoff is needed, it is set for Tuesday, December 11, 2012. The General Election is set for January 29, 2013, one week prior to the opening of the legislative session.
