|Priscilla Dunn (D)||10,862|
|Nathan J. Reed (D)||2,043|
The election for Seat 19 on the Alabama Senate was scheduled for August 18. However, no Republican qualified to run against Dunn in that election. Since Dunn's name was to be the only name on the ballot, and since Jefferson County was cash-strapped, Secretary of State Beth Chapman canceled the election, which resulted in Dunn winning the seat. The special election would have cost about $100,000.
In 2010, Dunn raised $210,291 in contributions.
Her four largest contributors were:
|Alabama Education Association||$25,000|
|Alabama Power Co||$12,000|
Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
Note: As of October 2014, we were unable to locate any scorecards for the state of Alabama. If you are aware of a scorecard Ballotpedia has not included please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dunn and her husband, Grover, have one child. They reside in Bessemer, Alabama.
Dunn is a member of the Bessemer Civic Center Board of Directors, secretary for Girls Incorporated of Central Alabama and president of the Humanistic Challengers Federated Club.
