Majority leader Stadthagen sees strength in election of 26 republican legislators  

Special to the Enquirer  

Rep. Scott Stadthagen (R-Hartselle) was elected by Republican members of the Alabama House of Representatives to serve as the body’s Majority Leader, replacing Rep. Nathaniel Ledbetter (R-Rainsville) who was elected Speaker of the House. Stadthagen, who will serve as leader of the caucus as it ushers in 26 new Republican members, is looking forward to the advantages that the large incoming class could bring to the new quadrennium. 

“I have had the opportunity to speak with each of the newly elected members and I am excited by the new ideas they bring to the table,” Stadthagen said. “There is value in bringing fresh sets of eyes with new suggestions for policy into our caucus. I am excited about it.” 

Stadthagen is also confident that the institutional knowledge and experience that veteran members have will be an asset to new members and to the House of Representatives as a whole. 

“The men and women who are returning to serve the people of our state in the Alabama Legislature after being re-elected are returning with the knowledge that the people of their districts voted overwhelmingly to re-elect them,” Stadthagen explained. “Having that vote of confidence from the constituents that you work so hard to serve is a big motivator. We will not forget the faith that the people of Alabama have put in us. They are counting on the Republican caucus. We won’t let them down.” 

Stadthagen has promised to have a direct line of communication with all of the caucus members, newly elected and re-elected, to ensure that each member is getting the support they need to represent their district to the best of their ability. 

“I am committed to staying in close contact with all of the caucus members to be as helpful as possible,” Stadthagen promised. “That is the role I was elected to do and I take it very seriously. I want to help make this quadrennium as productive as possible for every legislator and for the people of the State of Alabama.” 

Stadthagen was elected to the Alabama House of Representatives in 2018 and re-elected on November 8 with 99.1% of the vote. He and his wife, Amy, have one daughter, Collins.
