Thrower also served as coordinator of Alabama’s first congressional district for the Campaign for Liberty, as well as the Ron Paul 2012 Republican presidential campaign. He also served as a delegate candidate for Ron Paul for the first district during the recent Alabama presidential primary.

Thrower said he believes Atmore has a bright future and is willing to put in the work to represent the needs of the people of District 1.

“With a strong community and the right leadership, I believe Atmore has a bright future ahead,” Thrower said. “Creating a business-friendly environment to attract job generating industry to the community and monitoring municipal spending to reduce government waste, along with lowering taxes, are positive means of achieving and maintaining a prosperous future.”
