Rep. Randall Shedd Sworn In

State Representative Randall Shedd, R-Fairview was sworn into office today in ceremonies at Wallace State College in Hanceville. Shedd was elected in a special election in 2013 and ran unopposed in the 2014 election.

Shedd said he chose Hanceville and Wallace State for the ceremony location because they are new to his district and Hanceville is now the largest city in his district.

“With the oath ceremony, I want to demonstrate that I will be a strong voice for Wallace State College,” Shedd said. “Today, we begin a new scholarship for Wallace State students living in my legislative district who use dual enrollment,” Shedd added.

Shedd pointed out two other significant points at the ceremony. “I want to make sure I never forget where I came from so Mayor Dyar of Baileyton where I grew up administered the Oath of Office and I will always think of senior citizens and that is why we had the ceremony in the daytime instead of at night.”

“In Alabama, we are fortunate to be led by Governor Robert Bentley, a man of unquestioned integrity, proven performance and genuine compassion for the people of Alabama and I am going to help him move this state forward,” Shedd said. “And, the people of Alabama have confidence in him.”

Shedd told the crowd in attendance that he will continue with his Legislative Community Meetings throughout the four counties in his district and will listen to people in his district as he develops his legislative plans for the next session which begins March 3, 2014.

“As I hear from the people I represent, my plans are to introduce legislation, promote legislation and vote for legislation focused on five areas:

1. Maintain Our Core Values
2. Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!
3. Take Care of My District
4. Simplify Government
5. Watch and Control Spending

I ask for everyone’s prayers as I try to do the right thing in Montgomery,” Shedd said in closing.

Shedd represents portions of Blount, Cullman, Marshall and Morgan Counties in the Alabama House of Representatives. He can be reached by cell phone at 256.531.6641 or email at
