Amari Ponders PSC Race

I've been told that ex State Sen John Amari (R-Trussville) is close to jumping into the Republican primary for the open PSC seat being vacated by George Wallace Jr.

Amari was elected to the State House as a Democrat in 1978 and served in the State Senate from 1982-1998 (changing parties before the 1990 election). Amari was narrowly defeated by Steve Windom in the GOP 1998 primary for Lieutenant Governor. His 2002 comeback bid failed as he lost to State Sen Steve French in the GOP primary for Senate District 15.

If Amari runs he would face Perry Hooper Jr., who was ousted from the state legislature in 2002, in the GOP primary. An Amari/Hooper primary would be interesting as they are both trying to revive political careers recently gone off track. While Hooper Jr. has higher statewide name recognition (thanks mostly to his father), Amari's JeffCo base is bigger and he has run statewide before. Both Hooper and Amari have stayed politically active since their defeats, but a primary pitting the two would probably end the loser's political career.

However, even the winner of this hypothetical primary is not guaranteed a seat on the PSC. Democrat Susan Parker should be a strong candidate as well. Throw in the only other announced candidate, Democrat Debbie Murphree (who's lost county races in Autauga), and each candidate running for this PSC seat has lost his or her most recent race(s).

Fortunately at least one of them will see their electoral slumps reversed in 2006.

John Amari is a good man. I've known him for years. As a montgomery resident, most of us know the hooper's for what they are. Perry Jr would be on welfare without his family name. He has no marketable skills, but thats the kind of politician the Power Company likes, just ask jim sullivan and jan cook and an ever bigger dolt than hooper, Geo. Wallace Jr. The spawn of the one of the most corrupt family's in Alabama history.
I wonder if perry has his condo deals like sullivan?

You were "told" this. That's funny because I read it in the Birmingham News a few days ago.

I missed it in the B'ham News. That is probably where the person who mentioned it got it from, but I can't say for sure. Appreciate the feedback.

If you would view my website, and read about the 80 percent Republican stronghold in my county, you might see why a Democrat could lose. :) Actually my first race was for sheriff, wherein the sheriff carried the ballots to another county to count, in the primary. The second race, we worked hard, but still, being Democrat was tough in Autauga. We are now working to rebuild the Democrat party which has been on "vacation" Certainly a state race will seem a true challenge, but we are making progress and will continue to shake hands and kiss babies.

Debbie Murphree is a personal friend of mine and she is right! Democratics have been asleep and need to wake up in Autaguville. WE NEED a CHANGE FROM REBUBLICAN. Come on all you democratics come out of the closet and vote Democratic in November!

I've met Debbie Murphree as well. I've also met Mr. Hooper. I have not yet met Mr. Amari.

Debbie is real down to earth and is just a regular citizen, much like myself.

In my opinion, she represents the type people we need in office.

Susan Parker? please, say it aint so! I cant stand another 30 second tv ad proclaiming her trailer trash roots. talk about grave dancing, 90% of people in alabama grow up 'poor' what ever that is and to make light of the poor by proclaiming you are like them still, when you clearly are not, is a big fat lie.
Parker couldnt even beat the buffoon julian mcphillips so please, why would anyone think she can successfully beat any republican in november, especially during a governors race?
She is also just another Hubbert/AEA mouthpiece.

Anonymous, Parker DID beat Jullian, but if you really believe that her ethics are not all that credible? you should vote otherwise.

yes she did beat mcphillips but in fact no one remembers it. mcphillips and parker are both regrettable, forgettable figures. And yes, Parker is owned by Hubbert the vice chairman of the alabama democrat party and don of the dixie politimafia

Anonymous, please explain to me why you believe, or if you have facts, that Parker is owned by Paul Hubbert, an also also "don" of the dixie politimafia..whatever that is?

Actually, I no longer live in a doublewide, but I have respect of everyone, no matter where they live, or where they have come from. I am not into degradation of others, nor do I support the practice of it. Only looking for facts, and if you have any, then lay them on the table. Otherwise, consider the golden rule.

I'm a young man, only 24, but I am wise enough to know an honest & hardworking man when I see him. That man is John Amari.

I have personally met the three republican candidates for PSC. I believe if we want to control our utility bills we better elect Perry Hooper, Jr. for PSC. It takes someone who has a some political power to get things done in this state. The utility comapnies would chew Jack Hornady up and spit him out. John Amari makes me nervous and those commercials have completely turned me off. Perry Hooper is my choice for PSC!

I've met Amari. My impression is that he is the friend of the wealthy. I found him to be a bit arrogant -- especially since he was quick to bring up politics.

It's funny that the anonymous gentleman would say that John Amari is a friend of the Wealthy when he only raised $20,000, while Perry Hooper Junior raised over $350,000. Maybe it's not so funny!

Mr Amari represented me and my family in several civil and legal issues. He cares for the poor and was very eager to be patient and work with us on payment on those matters especially in the estate of my grandfather in which we were flat broke after paying his burial expenses due to lack of insurance. He's a great man, and has a great understanding of the law. He'll make a great judge and I would be willing to help in his cause.
