2018 Elections

Patricia Todd might be leaving the Legislature at the end of the term, but the House might not lose its gay voice.

Felicia Stewart, a gay woman who is married and has two children, is running for the District 46 House seat held by Republican David Faulkner.  Stewart, of Mountain Brook, is running on the Democratic ticket. Todd, who made history in 2006 as the first openly gay candidate to win a seat in the Legislature, recently announced she would not seek re-election to the District 54 seat. Stewart’s campaign website does not push LGBTQ issues to the forefront of her campaign, though, as Todd did.
