Alabaster councilman to run for Ward's seat
"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.
