Northport City Councilman Rodney Sullivan will run to represent Tuscaloosa County in Alabamafs House District 61 when its seat becomes available in 2018, he announced Monday night.

The seat is now held by three-term Rep. Alan Harper, who announced last month that he will not seek re-election.

Sullivan is seven months into his second term on the Northport City Council, where he serves as president pro tempore, and said his candidacy for the seat will not immediately interfere with work in that role.

gI want to make it very, very clear- This will not have an effect on my job as your District 3 representative,h Sullivan said Monday. gIfm very fortunate to have a very strong team of people behind me who are already in place to help me continue to do this job.h Sullivan will run as a Republican, but didnft say much more Monday night about his plan to win the legislative office, electing to leave that for a later date.

gIfm not really going to go into my platform or anything like that. Wefre still a year away from primaries, and tonight was really for me to let (my constituents) know,h Sullivan said gItfs a blessing to know I will have the opportunity to serve all of you guys on a much larger level.h Sullivan said he loves his work as a councilman, but decided if he didnft run for the Alabama Legislature now, he never would. He fought tears during his announcement as he recalled the bonds hefs developed with Mayor Donna Aaron and the other members of the council, including District 1s Dennis Hambright, who died last month.

gIfm excited for Northport, for you and your family, and we wish you well,h Aaron told Sullivan. gI know youfll keep us at the top of your list when you get there.h Sullivan is 32 years old and manages his fatherfs lumber mill when hefs not at City Hall. He lives in Northport with his wife Lacey and their young songs, Parker and Patton.
