ELMORE COUNTY, AL (WSFA) -

There are three Republican candidates in the District 88 legislative seat.

We begin with Autauga County Probate Judge Al Booth, who started out what he describes as a 'country' lawyer. Booth is 74 and is no longer allowed to run for the probate office again because of his age, but he has no doubt he has the experience, the knowledge and the passion to continue serving the public. This time in the Alabama statehouse.

'"I believe it's my experience. Experience in the law, experience in this office and being able to help and serve people directly," said Booth.

The executive chief officer for the Chamber of Commerce Association of Alabama is 40 years old and feels he has the background to make a difference in District 88.

"The economy, which is jobs to make sure we have a qualified and trained workforce, because of the demands of our workforce needs here. Education training our future, but it also continues adult education as well to make sure we have a qualified and trained workforce and ethics," said Jeremy Arthur.

Rounding out the three candidates is 28-year-old Will Dismukes. A businessman and former college baseball pitcher.

"I just really think this is an opportunity to seek out new blood in office and new energy. We need to get with the private sector to see what we can do to bring more business and more industry," said Dismukes.

The three candidates combined have raised around $165,000 for the race. The district covers most of Prattville, all of Millbrook and Coosada, an area representing in the neighborhood of around 40,000 registered voters.

Incumbent Rep. Paul Beckman decided not to run for re-election and is instead running for the Autauga County Probate Office.

The primary is June 5. The winner will face Democratic challenger Corey Neil Creel in the November general election.
