Pate describes herself as a "small government" Republican and believes her strong communications skills and commitment to transparency in government will serve the people of Alabama House District 73 well.
Alabaster City Councilwoman Kerri Pate has declared with the Alabama Republican Party her intent to seek the party’s nomination in a special election to fill a vacancy in District 73 of the Alabama House of Representatives. Pate is a pro-business, common-sense conservative.
She is married to Doug Pate, who runs a small business. The couple have lived in Alabaster for 23 years and have raised 3 children, including a daughter who is married and lives in Baldwin County, a son who plays football at Auburn and is an Engineering Student, and their youngest daughter is a Junior at Thompson High School. They are active members of Church of the Highlands.
Pate is currently serving in her second term on the Alabaster City Council, and she is a member of the Planning and Zoning Commission. She is employed at the American Village in Montevallo where she works in Community Outreach and as a Volunteer Coordinator. Her work at the American Village has helped to forge strong relationships with educators, Veterans and Veteran groups and more importantly the community of Montevallo.
Her campaign will focus on job creation, education, and improving vital infrastructure across Alabama. A staunch Conservative, Pate says she will work with state leaders to keep Alabama's taxes low and incentivize job creation to further solidify our state's pro-business reputation.
