Posted By rotary
This week Tuscaloosa Rotary continues to uphold its long tradition of honoring and hosting our public officials. Representative Bill Poole of the Alabama legislature will speak to the club on the issues facing District 63.
Poole, first elected to the Alabama House of Representatives in November, 2010, currently serves that district through his work on several committees. In keeping with the importance of the University for the area, Poole serves on the Ways and Means, Education Committee, and on its Higher Education appropriations subcommittee. He also serves on the Judiciary committee, the Technology and Research committee and the Tuscaloosa County Legislation committee.
Poole is on record as an advocate of several specific platform issues for the district: To support and grow existing business, and to attract new business investment; to expand transportation infrastructure through the McWright’s Ferry Road extension, the Northern Beltway and the widening of I-20/59; to support education not only through the University of Alabama, but also innovation in K-12 and continued support of Pre-K programs.
Raised in Marengo County, Representative Poole attended the University of Alabama and the University of Alabama School of Law. He has been a general practice attorney since 2004. He and his wife Niccole have two children, Sally and Bill, and are members of First United Methodist Church in Tuscaloosa.
