Alabama Rep. Arnold Mooney, R-Birmingham, will serve a second consecutive term in the House of Representatives after winning his bid for re-election for House District 43 on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Mooney received 14,999 votes in Shelby County, which was good for 72 percent, compared to 5,817 votes, or 27.9 percent from his democratic opposition Carin Mayo.

House District 43 represents Shelby County and Jefferson County where Mooney will serve another term.

Mooney is a committed conservative businessman who has lived and worked in Alabama House District 43 for more than 28 years.

Mooney attended Samford University and was subsequently awarded undergraduate and graduate degrees with highest honors in political science and history. He also studied abroad at the University of Oxford (England), as a Rotary Scholar sponsored from the Rotary Club of Birmingham and as a Scottish Rite Foundation Fellow in post graduate study in the School of Government and Business Administration at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

Earlier this year, Mooney was honored as one of the 2018 Legislators of the Year by Mothers Against Drunk Driving for his part in the lifesaving legislation to stop the tragedies caused by drunk driving. He was one of 31 lawmakers across 13 states to be recognized.
