“Being a public servant is a true commitment and calling, one which requires great selflessness and sacrifice. I would like to thank all of our candidates for giving their time and talents to this campaign. I truly appreciate their desire to represent the people of House District 16 in the Alabama Legislature. On behalf of the Alabama Republican Party, I would like to offer my congratulations to Bryan Brinyark and look forward to working with him in the future as we mount a vigorous general election campaign,” said ALGOP Chairman John Wahl.
House District 16 covers Fayette County and portions of Jefferson and Tuscaloosa Counties. It became vacant when former State Representative Kyle South became the President and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama.
The Special General Election will take place on January 9, 2024.
