JUSTIN BARKLEY ANNOUNCES CAMPAIGN
"I’m Justin Barkley, and today I’m announcing my candidacy for the Alabama State House of Representatives, District 46. I’m running because I believe it’s time for a new generation of conservative leaders to bring common sense solutions and conservative reforms to our state government.
"This District is my home. My family’s roots run deep in every corner of this District. I grew up in Hoover and am a proud graduate of Hoover High School, where I met my lovely wife of 11 years. After I graduated from Harvard, Melissa and I lived in an apartment in Mountain Brook, while I attended the University of Alabama School of Law. After I graduated, we bought a small home in Homewood, and I began practicing law on Lakeshore Drive.
"Over the years we’ve been blessed to watch our family grow, and Melissa and I are thrilled to be the parents of 3 wonderful children – with a fourth, a boy, on the way!
"It would be an honor and a privilege to represent this District, because its communities are where my family and I have lived, worked, gone to school and worshipped for many years.
"I’m not a career politician, though I am a lifelong conservative Republican. I’ve never run for office before. I don’t want to go to Montgomery to represent special interests. I want to go to Montgomery to represent you.
"I look forward to meeting with each one of you, and I’ll see you on the campaign trail! Thank you, and God bless."
