BELOW IS AN ANALYSIS OF BIRMINGHAM AREA RACES
1. PAT MOORE
House District 15 (Northwest Jefferson) Pat Moore is a solid pro life Christian. She has a
history of standing for the people and can be counted on to be a voice for conservative values in the Alabama Legislature.
2. TOM DAVIS (Conservative) vs. Greg Canfield
House District 48: Jefferson (Southern), Shelby
Hrouse District 48 Election to replace Jim Carnes
Jim Carns (R)* - Running for Jefferson County Commission in 2006 and is leaving the job of Representative of House District 48.
TOM DAVIS (R) - Attorney and Bank Founder
Greg Canfield (R) - Vestavia City Council President
Hugh Cort (R) - Psychiatrist
Della Fancher (R) - Activist
Terry Reagen (R)
Tom Davis- a fiscal and moral conservative who supports lower taxes. He is for abolishing the annual reappraisal of property taxes. Tom Davis will work to roll back and then freeze property taxes to keep our taxes low and encourage the American dream of home ownership.
Tom Davis was previously the Alabama Republican Party Nominee for State Treasurer, and also for a Judgeship in Jefferson County.
Greg Canfield- Vestavia Hills City Council,
Della Fancher- Co-Architect of the Cahaba Heights annexation into Vestavia Hills, which has resulted in soaring property and sales taxes.
Della Fancher is apparently quite wealthy and has contributed to the campaigns of many liberal Democrats. Records with the Alabama Secretary of State reflect that Della Fancher
has contributed to the campaigns of Democrats Don Siegelman, Dewayne Freeman, Tom Butler, and the Congressional race of Marsha Folsom, wife of former Governor Jim Folsom.
Dr. Hugh Cort, a Psychiatrist, is running. He is also running for President.
Tom Davis has been endorsed by the Alabama Republican Assembly and Conservative Christians of Alabama.
VICKI SELF BAILEY - House District 51
Will work to prevent the abuse of eminent domain laws, and for the accountability of citizen's tax dollars, and I believe in the traditional definition of marriage. Vicki is
pro-life and will work hard for the people of District 51 and be their voice in Montgomery. Vicki Self Bailey was endorsed by the conservative group, Alabama Republican Assembly, and is the clear conservative choice of Alabama Conservative Christians.
Rep Albert Morton - House District 45.
In the State House District 45 race, Rep. Albert Morton is being challenged by liberal Leeds City Councilman Owen Drake. Drake has either introduced or supported every single tax or fee hike considered by the city council except one and has constantly supported reckless spending. On the other hand, Morton has a solid conservative voting record in the Legislature and has consistently been highly ranked by the Christian Coalition.
Scott Beason (Conservative) vs. Jack Biddle (Liberal)
State Senate District 17 Northern Jefferson County
Incumbent Jack Biddle vs. Scott Beason
Jack Biddle is the incumbent Republican State Senator. Jack is a former Democrat who has not forgotten his liberal roots. A rating of state senators, reflects that Jack Biddle
is one of the most liberal Republicans in the Alabama Legislature, expecting one other.
Jack Biddle supported the Billion Dollar Bob Tax Plan.
The Christian Coalition Score Card shows that Jack Biddle voted "Present" on 8 out of 20 key votes on moral issues. Which reflects a lack of leadership to stand for moral values. This reflects Jack Biddle as being one of the most liberal Republican State Senators in
the Alabama Legislature. Jack Biddle voted "Present" on most of the Don Sigeleman's Lottery Proposals, which would have allowed the Lottery and Gambling to come into the state.
Scott Beason has a reputation for a integrity and conservative values. In a rating of the Alabama Legislature, Scott Beason was rated the Number 1 Conservative House Member on tax
and moral issues. See rating of all members of the Alabama Legislature.
Scott Beason opposed the Billion Dollar Bob Tax Plan. Scott Beason will work to stop the annual reappraisal of property values which is an annual tax increase. Scott Beason
received a rating of "A" from the Christian Coalition Scorecard. Scott Beason has consistently stood against the special interest groups:
JEFFERSON COUNTY COMMISSION
The liberal Larry Langford team has shifted into over drive to defeat conservative
candidates Bobby Humphryes, Bettye Fine Collins and Jim Carns for seats on the Jefferson County Commission. As you will remember, Langford is the liberal Democrat President of the majority Republican Commission thanks to the vote of liberal RINO (Republican in Name Only) Gary White.
Since White put Langford in power, the county debt has skyrocketed, taxes and fees have been raised and an anti-business climate has become a way of life.
BOBBY HUMPHRYES - DISTRICT 3
In the District 3 race, Humphryes has a solid record as a conservative State Representative. He has led the way on pro-life issues, pro-family legislation, and pushed to repeal the Langford sales tax increase. In addition, he opposed the Langford supported MAPS Tax several years ago and has signed a pledge to support only a Republican for President of the Commission. Bobby Humphryes received a solid conservative rating from the Christian Coalition http://www.ccofal.org/alabama/Scorecard.pdf and also the rating of the Ala Legislature, reflects that Bobby Humphryes has a record of standing for the people. His opponent, Ann Hodges Goolsby does not seem to have a firm grasp of the issues and is widely thought to be supported by Langford. She strongly supported the Storm Water Tax increase and has refused to sign the pledge to support a Republican for Commission President. She is outspoken in her criticism of conservative Commissioner Bettye Fine Collins.
BETTY FINE COLLINS - DISTRICT 4
In the District 4 race, Incumbent Collins is being challenged by a RINO recruited by the Langford team. Collins has been the lone conservative voice on the Commission and she has
been the only voice to oppose Langford's kooky ideas and reckless spending. One of the latest issues she did battle with Langford and White on was spending several million dollars on a downtown trolley system which doesn't even have tracks to run on. In addition to serving on the commission, Mrs. Collins serves as National Committeewoman on the Republican National Committee and has proven her credentials as a conservative leader. Commissioner Collins easily deserves re-election.
JIM CARNS - DISTRICT 5
The District 5 race has taken a nasty turn as liberal RINO Gary White has started a smear
campaign of lies and distortion against conservative challenger Jim Carns. White's tenure on the commission has been disastrous for conservatives. He has been at the epicenter of
the sewer boondoggle which has caused our sewer rates to be raised by 1,000% and are
projected to go even higher. He has supported several tax hikes, including the MAPS Tax, the occupational tax, the Storm Water Tax, and voted twice for a taxpayer funded Dome. (He flip-flopped his position on this when Carns entered the race) Since making Langford President of the Commission, he has supported almost every wild spending scheme Langford has proposed. He has supported several questionable no-bid bond and construction contracts and currently has contractors working for his department who have been convicted of public corruption. He has pledged to vote only for himself for commission President if re-elected. ! Most conservatives aren't fooled by this Langford-White scheme for Langford to maintain control by making White President of the commission. Fortunately conservatives have a candidate to turn to in Representative Jim Carns. While serving in the state legislature, Carns has been a leader on pro-life, pro-family issues, welfare reform and pro-business issues. He is a solid family man and has pledged to be a solid conservative on the county commission. He has signed a pledge to support only a Republican for president of the commission and to fight for responsible fiscal policies and conservative spending. Jim Carns received a solid conservative rating from the Christian Coalition http://www.ccofal.org/alabama/Scorecard.pdf
reflects that Jim Carns has a record of standing for the people.
