MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Corrections officer and former county commissioner for Morgan County, Stacy Lee George, is on the Republican ballot for Alabama’s gubernatorial race.

“I’m just a person that has a regular job. I’m not a millionaire, you know, with a lot of campaign money,” said George.

George works as a corrections officer and says this is what really sets him apart in the race for governor.

“I’m the only one that actually brings justice and liberty to Alabama,” he said.

And he’s outlined a plan to do so in his book titled ‘Let Stacy Lee George Do It!’

“My book tells as County Commissioner how I outline almost every issue,” he said. “From prisons to politics to stealing money, how people steal money, I’ve already done it.”

All the issues George writes and campaigns about he says are important to him, but something close to him is the state’s correction system. He says there’s injustice on both sides.

“There are judges out here that do a good job,” said George. “And there are some judges out here that are totally out of control. And they give long sentences, and they’re, they’re playing God’s job. And that has to be fixed.”

A solution George says he’s already thought about.

“We would lower the prison population, we’d get it under control, lower the budget, and we would have a workforce,” said George.

Education is another important issue to George and he says his solution to improving this and other areas in Alabama is to put God first.
