Birmingham Association of REALTORS® Recommends Support of Jefferson County Primary Election Candidates

The Government Affairs screening panel of The Birmingham Association of REALTORS® conducted interviews with candidates running in the June 5 primary election and the Nov. 6 general election in Jefferson County.

“Our REALTOR® members take this selection process very seriously,” said Jessica Coates, Director of Government and Community Affairs. “These members are asking questions relating to the real estate industry in the areas where they work and live. They want to know how these candidates will work to encourage positive real estate growth in their communities through their elected capacities.”

The association screening committee, made up of REALTOR® members, is recommending the following candidates for re-election in Jefferson County:

  • George F. Bowman Sr. – Jefferson County Commissioner, District 1 
  • Sandra Little Brown – Jefferson County Commissioner, District 2
  • James A. Stephens Jr. – Jefferson County Commissioner, District 3
  • Joe Knight – Jefferson County Commissioner, District 4 (who faces his opponent in the November general election)


“Our REALTORS® are very involved and passionate about protecting their industry and clients living in Jefferson County,” Coates said. “Our goal here is not politics; it’s advocacy. It’s about making sure the REALTOR® voice is heard and that these professionals making Jefferson County home for so many have a seat at the table.”
