Walker running for District 73 house seat

A Montgomery attorney kicks off his campaign for the House of Representatives for District 73.  Jeremy Walker announced his plans for politics Wednesday.

Walker says its time to provide new leadership in the Statehouse.  The republican says he intends to focus on economic development, restoring integrity in government and improving public education.  "If you were to repeal the pay raise you would save approximately three million dollars a year.  The people here in the Statehouse would have you believe that is a drop in a bucket and I tell you that's a step in the right direction if we're going to be fiscally responsible in public office," says Walker.

Walker will face David Grimes in the republican primary.  Grimes has represented District 73 for 8 years and says he intends to run again.
