SHARE NOW

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Ben Robbins, a Talladega County native, Sylacauga resident, and local attorney, has declared with the Alabama Republican Party his intentions to seek the party’s nomination in a special election to fill a vacancy in House District 33 of the Alabama House of Representatives.

House District 33, which includes portions of Talladega, Clay, and Coosa Counties, was formerly represented by Representative Ron Johnson, who passed away earlier this month. The Republican Special Primary Election will be held on Oct. 6, 2020, with the General Election scheduled for Jan. 19, 2021.

“Representative Johnson served Talladega, Coosa, and Clay Counties well for more than forty years,” said Robbins. “His seniority and institutional knowledge made him a significant figure in the halls of the Alabama House of Representatives. His leadership will be missed. He was a great friend to the people of our District.”

A press release says Robbins’ campaign will focus on job creation, education, and improving vital infrastructure across Alabama. A staunch Conservative, Robbins says he will work with legislative leaders to keep Alabama’s taxes low and find creative ways to incentivize job creation in an effort to solidify our state’s pro-business reputation.

“Our district is a wonderful place to raise a family,” Robbins added. “We owe it to our children and grandchildren to leave them with more opportunities than we had, and I believe fresh ideas, bold leadership and true conservative values are the foundation of that success.”

Robbins is active in the community, serving on multiple community boards, including Habitat for Humanity, Co-President of Leadership Sylacauga and serves the Talladega Rotary Club as a Past-President. He is also active with several local Chambers of Commerce and the Sylacauga Young Professionals. He is a seventh generation Talladega County resident and the grandson of the former Childersburg Mayor, Robert Limbaugh. He and his wife Melanie have one son, Gabe.
