State Senator Harri Anne Smith Running for 2nd District Seat

State Senator Harri Anne Smith says she is running for the Republican nomination for the Congressional seat in Alabama's 2nd District.

The seat is being vacated by retiring U.S. Representative Terry Everett, a Republican from Rehobeth.

Smith, who is from Slocomb, held a news conference to announce she is running for the seat that has been held by a Republican since 1964.

She says she is running because she believes she has the experience needed to help the people of the 2nd District, which stretches across central and southeast Alabama from Prattville to Dothan.

The 45-year-old Smith is serving her third term in the state Senate. She is former mayor of Slocomb.

    Mrs. Smith, Maybe I mis-understood the article that you are withdrawing the electronic bingo issue from the November ballot. Mrs. Smith, how much more fair can an issue become than allowing the voters to decide. The greedy, selfish people that urged you to withdraw the proposal knew that the Christian population of Houston County would never allow electronic bingo, i.e. "gambling" to become legal. Please reconsider the withdrawal. We deserve the right to choose if we want to have electronic bingo in our county just as we had the right to decide if we would have the state lottery when Don Siegleman was Governor. I suppose you mean well, but if this is how you buckle to a little criticism from the desperate who will do anything to get their way, then you will surely not make a good US Senator. What's more important to you, doing the right thing for the people of your district by allowing us to decide our on fate or giving in to the ways of the world? May God bless you. Madrid, AL
