All candidates for Alabama House of Representatives District 88 complete Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey

Both of the candidates running in the November 8, 2022, general election for Alabama House of Representatives District 88 — Jerry Starns (R) and Tyler May (L) — completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. These survey responses allow voters to hear directly from candidates about what motivates them to run for office. 

Eighty-eight of the country’s 99 state legislative chambers will hold regularly scheduled elections in 2022. The Republican Party controls both chambers of Alabama’s state legislature. Alabama is one of 23 states with a Republican party trifecta.

Here are excerpts from candidates’ responses to the question: What are the main points you want voters to remember about your goals for your time in office? 


  • “I want to work with the leadership in District 88, not just the county commissioners, city councils and mayors but the Chambers, the Economic Development teams and, of course, the citizens help Elmore and Autauga Counties reach their full potential.”
  • “Fight for Law Enforcement and our Military.”
  • “Fight for Education.”


  • “Taxation is Theft”
  • “All Gun Laws are Unconstitutional”
  • “You know how to live your life best, I’m running to allow you to do so.”
