Charlotte Meadows announces run for House District 74 seat
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The co-founder of Mongomery’s LEAD Academy charter school Charlotte Meadows announced she will run for the District 74 House seat.
In a news release, Meadows said she will focus on being an advocate for public school education and helping students better prepare for today’s workforce.
“Improving the public schools in Montgomery is the key to recruiting new industries and opportunities for our citizens, preserving jobs at Maxwell and Gunter, and making sure that District 74 remains growing and vibrant,” Meadows said. “We must attract more businesses to fill the empty storefronts that dot our legislative district, we must work to stop the crime that occurs in our neighborhoods, and we must preserve a quality of life that keeps our friends, neighbors, children, and grandchildren from moving elsewhere. I know we can make Montgomery the same vibrant city that I remember from childhood.”
Meadows was a member of the Montgomery School Board for six years where she served as board president from 2010 to 2012. She is also the former director of Alabama Outreach of StudentsFirst, a non-profit organization that works to improve public education.
Gov. Kay Ivey set a special election for the District 74 seat after the death of State Rep. Dimitri Polizos.
