Republican Parker Moore won the special election for House District 4 Tuesday evening, defeating Democrat Juanita Healy and Independent Polan “Pete” Willis in the race fill the vacancy created when former Rep. Micky Hammon pleaded guilty to felony mail fraud.
House District 4 includes Limestone and Morgan counties.
Following his win, Moore posted a thank you note to his supporters on Facebook.
Thank you District 4! I appreciate the trust and confidence you have shown in me. I look forward to representing you as a conservative Republican. Tonight is just one step; we have one more election to go on June 5th!
Moore’s victory will be short-lived as the terms expire in November and he must seek re-election in order to serve a full term.
He’s already slated to face fellow Republican Tom Fredricks in the June 5 primary for the seat.
The winner of that race will go on to face Healy in the Nov. 6 general election. Independent Willis will join the two should he meet the signature requirement necessary to be included on the ballot.
