Political Qualifying Season Opens Scott Stadthagen Wastes No Time

The political season officially opened this morning in Cullman County and across the State of Alabama.

Candidates for elective office can now begin their journeys by submitting election qualifying paperwork. The potential candidate has until the 5 pm, Friday, February 9th, to accomplish this critical campaign task.

Long announced candidate Scott Stadthagen wasted no time this morning qualify at the Alabama Republic Party Headquarters surrounded by his family and supports.

Scott Stadthagen is one of the early favorites to replace Ed Henry for the open the Alabama House of Representative seat for District 9.

When asked how he feels about completing this step of the process, Stadthagen replied:

“Excited! We have been working hard since last January preparing for this journey. It feels good to complete this step and I look forward to continuing to talk to the people across Cullman and Morgan Counties. Representing others is about listening to what they have to say and that’s what we have been doing.”

When questioned on what he feels he offers the people of District 9, Stadthagen replied:

“I believe my track record shows that I am committed to bringing folks together to create opportunities and accomplish big things. I will roll up my sleeves and work hard for the people I represent just as I have in every position I have held. We need conservative value-driven ideas that produce results, not rhetoric.”

Scott Stadthagen lives in Hartselle with his wife Amy Ann Peck Stadthagen and daughter Collins and are members of First Baptist Church Hartselle. He is a graduate of The University of West Alabama. The owner of Hagen Homes Inc and currently serves as Chair of the Hartselle Area Chamber of Commerce:

“My next steps are simple, I will continue meeting and listen to the people across District 9. We have several stops planned and continue to set up more opportunities to meet the people.”
