Legislators don’t plan to leave either job


MONTGOMERY — Don’t expect any announcements about leaving their jobs, or giving up their seats in the State Legislature from two legislators working at Gadsden State Community College.

At least, don’t expect those announcements anytime soon.

In recent weeks, two state legislators, Rep. Ken Guin, D-Carbon Hill, and Rep. Neal Morrison, D-Cullman, have respectively terminated contracts with the two-year college system, and resigned a seat in the Legislature.

Guin, who serves as the House majority leader, terminated contracts with Shelton State and most recently Bevill State community colleges. Morrison, who resigned, was already employed at Wallace State and will become interim president at Bevill State.

Their decisions come in advance of the implementation of a new policy that would force them to choose between their jobs with the two-year college system, or stay in the Legislature.

Rep. Blaine Galliher, R-Gadsden, and Rep. Jack Page, D-Gadsden, don’t plan to follow in their footsteps.
