MONTGOMERY, Ala. — ProgressPAC, the Business Council of Alabama’s political action committee, has endorsed small business owner and Helena City Council President Pro Tempore Leigh Hulsey in the House District 73 special primary runoff election.
The seat was vacated by former Rep. Matt Fridy’s election to the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals. HD 73 represents portions of Shelby County, including Alabaster, Helena, Pelham and Montevallo.
Hulsey has served on the Helena City Council since 2008. She also serves as the Council Liaison for the Helena Parks and Recreation Department and Police Department. In addition to her experience on the Helena City Council, Hulsey is the owner and operator at CrossFit Alabaster.
“Leigh Hulsey is a proven advocate for growing Alabama jobs, and we are proud to endorse her,” said Angus Cooper III, chairman of ProgressPAC’s board of directors. “Her experience and perspective as a Shelby County small business owner would be invaluable in Montgomery, especially as our state tries to rebound strongly from the pandemic. The business community is committed to building a 21st century economy in which all families across Alabama can thrive, and pro-jobs leaders like Leigh Hulsey will help make this a reality.”
The special primary runoff is scheduled for Tuesday, April 27.
“As a longtime small business owner, it is an honor to have the business community’s support,” stated Hulsey. “If elected by the people of House District 73, I will bring the commonsense conservative values that have guided me in business to the State House every single day. From improving our education system to roads, bridges and broadband, I will work tirelessly to help make my district – and our great state – the best possible place to earn a living and raise a family.”
