Alabaster councilman to run for Ward's seat

Alabaster City Councilman Jim McClain has announced he will run for the seat in the Alabama House of Representatives that is currently held by Rep. Cam Ward, who has said he will run for the state Senate in 2010.
"My experience as a council member has been one of offering solutions to problems and responding to the needs of my constituents," said McClain, the president of the council, in a statement. "I will have big shoes to fill in replacing Cam Ward who’s been a tireless advocate for District 49."
District 49 includes part of Shelby and Bibb counties.
"I'll spend a lot of time getting to know folks in Shelby County and Bibb County and listening to their concerns," McClain said.
McClain is co-owner of SMMS, Inc. in Alabaster. He has been married to Bonnie McClain for 29 years and they have four sons, Robbie, Cory, Jamie and Colby.
Ward, R-Alabaster, said he will run for the Senate seat that will be open with Sen. Hank Erwin, R-Montevallo, running for lieutenant governor.
