A pair of Chilton County commissioners voiced their support of an Alabaster state representative who is vying for a seat on the Alabama Senate.

Chilton County Commission Chairman Tim Mims and Vice Chairman Allen Caton endorsed Rep. Cam Ward, R-Alabaster, Feb. 2.

In his endorsement, Mims said he believed Ward to be a man of “honor and integrity,” and urged area residents to vote for the state representative in his quest for the District 14 Senate seat.

“I have gotten to know Cam Ward and find him to be a man of honor, integrity and results for his House district,” Mims said. “I will be supporting his candidacy for the Alabama Senate, and urge my constituents to do likewise.”

Caton said Ward has worked “tirelessly” for those in Central Alabama.

“Cam Ward exemplifies what public service should be about,” Canton said. “He works tirelessly for the citizens of his House district, and I can think of no one better suited to serve in the Alabama Senate.”

Ward voiced gratitude for the pair of Chilton County endorsements, saying he was looking forward to representing the county, along with Shelby, Bibb and Jefferson counties, if elected to the Senate.

“I am grateful to Chairman Mims and Commissioner Caton for their endorsement of my campaign for the Senate” Ward said. “I am looking forward to representing them and all of Chilton County if elected to the Alabama Senate.”
