The vacant District 11 Alabama House of Representatives seat, which represents portions of Morgan, Cullman and Blount counties, was filled on Thursday with the swearing in of Randall Shedd, R-Fairview.
The oath of office was administered by Republican House Speaker Mike Hubbard of Auburn at the beginning of a legislative session.
The process of filling the vacancy ended on Wed., April 10, when the Democratic Party failed to certify a candidate for a General Election, which was scheduled on May 7.
Shedd, 60, won claimed the GOP nomination by defeating Danny Alldredge in a special runoff election on March 26.
Rep. Shedd, director of the Commission on Aging for Cullman County, follows in the footsteps of Jeremy Oden, R-Eva, who resigned last December to accept an appointment to the Alabama Public Service Commission.
