Jefferson Judge To Run For Ala. Supreme Court

Montgomery, AL – Jefferson County Circuit Judge Mac Parsons says he's going to run for the Alabama Supreme Court next year, but he hasn't decided which of the three races he will enter.

Three seats currently held by Republicans are up for election next year. Justices Mike Bolin and Tom Parker are seeking re-election, but Justice Patti Smith is not. Parsons, a Democrat, says he will decide later which of the seats he will seek.

Parsons has served 11 years as a circuit judge. Before that, he spent 16 years in the state Senate, where he passed the state's consumer protection law. He also blew the whistle on legislators hiding pork projects in state agencies' appropriations.
