State Representative Billy Beasley, a native of Clayton, will run for the Alabama State Senate in 2010. Billy’s decision was delayed until he made sure his good friend Myron Penn was not going to run for reelection. He made it known that he wasn’t going to run if Myron ran for a third term. Myron has done an outstanding job of representing the people in his district and he will be missed in the Senate. But, he elected to retire from the Senate and get back into the full time practice of law. The Bullock County native has offices in Clayton and Union Springs. Billy had this to say in his announcement:
Having run a small business over the past several years in my home county, and having served in the House of Representatives for the past 11 years, I am convinced I can represent the citizens in Senate District 28 well and make sure that they are represented in a progressive and productive manner. I will make economic development and the creation of jobs, education, healthcare, and agricultural programs the top priorities for all of the counties in the district. My experience on the committee in the House of Representatives that handles the appropriations for the general fund has given me a good insight into how state government works. I will use that knowledge and experience to benefit the citizens in all of the counties in the 28th Senate District.
As many of you know, Billy is my younger brother. He and I grew up in Barbour County where our family settled in 1819 in a little place called Pratt’s Station, which is located between Clayton and Louisville. Our grandparents, Martin Luther and Julia Hurst Beasley, later moved to “town,” and made Clayton their home. After graduating from Auburn, serving in the Army, and then working as a pharmacist in Tuscaloosa, Clanton, and Greenville, in 1979 Billy returned to our hometown of Clayton. Billy is an extremely hard worker and has done a very good job in the House of Representatives. I am convinced that Billy will be an outstanding member of the Senate – if elected – and will represent all of the people in the 28th Senate District in a professional and effective manner.
