Cam Ward

Cam Ward State Senator from Alabaster, Alabama. A wonderful wife Lindsey & a great daughter Riley. Happy with life! Official web site- www.camward.com

State Senator Cam Ward is an Attorney who specializes in economic development and has always been dedicated to whatever cause he committed himself to. Born in Milton, Florida, Cam went to public school in Bradford County, Florida and was captain of his high school track team where he set five school records in distance running. Cam first became interested in public service when he volunteered to serve on the first Student Government Association ever created at his middle school. At the time he felt like there were many problems with facilities but no one would listen to the students concerns. To this day Cam’s motivation for being involved in public service is that he feels that too many problems exist in our community and so many public officials do not listen to those they represent to address those problems. In 1989, Cam received a Leadership Scholarship to Troy University. He quickly got involved in student activities, first as a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity, then later served two terms as President of the Troy University Student Government Association. In between, Cam was active in several academic honor societies related to his studies in International Relations. During Cam’s last year at Troy he rose to become State Vice- Chairman for Alabama College Republicans, where he was active in volunteering for different conservative candidates across Alabama. In 1993, Cam was admitted to Cumberland School of Law. In law school, Cam excelled in Constitutional, Corporate and Criminal law. This would serve him well during his later service in the Legislature. Upon graduation from Cumberland, Cam was admitted to the Alabama State Bar, where he has served on numerous committees over the years. Cam frequently visits Cumberland each year to address classes of students on the law and was named Cumberland Outstanding Alumnus of the Year in 2011. His dedication to the practice of law led him to be appointed Deputy Attorney General by former Attorney General Bill Pryor. In his work, Cam was assigned to the Alabama State Auditor’s office where he served as legal counsel. Later he went to work as Assistant Secretary of State dealing with election laws and corporate filings. Then after moving to Shelby County, Cam returned back home to work for Congressman Spencer Bachus as his District Director. The Wards bought their first home together in Alabaster during the peak of the county’s continued growth in 1996. 083A8943.jpg In 2000, Cam was selected for a Marshall Memorial Fellowship in Europe. He studied at several capitols throughout Europe including the European Parliament in Brussels. His studies abroad led him to participate in other international organizations such as the Spain-U.S. Council and the American Council of Young Political Leaders. Cam enjoys the opportunity to learn from other cultures and communities throughout the world. These experiences have helped him to see the different role public service plays in democratic societies as well as to understand the strengths and weaknesses of certain government institutions. Cam returned to the practice of law in 2001, where he was hired to head up the economic development efforts for the City of Alabaster. He has worked with local leaders for over a decade now to expand Alabaster’s retail shopping base by over 1.5 million square feet. In addition to his work in economic development Cam has also volunteered countless hours on various community boards of directors. Some of these causes have included the Glenwood Autism Center, the YMCA of Alabaster, Leadership Shelby County and other non-profit organizations. In 2009, Cam was recognized by Easter Seals of America for being one of its nationwide elected officials of the year. Cam received this honor as a result of his work to raise awareness about Autism. In 2002, Cam's daughter Riley was born. She attends public school in Alabaster where she is involved in many community activities. Shortly after Riley’s birth Cam was elected to the Alabama House of Representatives where he served for two terms. In 2010, he was elected to the Alabama Senate representing parts of Shelby, Bibb, Chilton, Hale and Jefferson County. He was re-elected in 2012. As a conservative Republican, Cam believes in limited government as well as strong protections for our 2nd Amendment rights. Cam has been active in many legislative issues over the years including the sponsorship of stronger ethics laws and pro-growth measures that reduced the amount of government regulation in the private sector. In 2011, during Cam’s first year in the Senate he and others led the passage of the most comprehensive package of tort reform measures in over a decade. In 2015, Cam was recognized nationally for his work on reforming Alabama’s criminal justice system. During his time in public service Cam has been recognized by various conservative groups for his work. He prides himself on staying close contact with his constituents and always being accessible to them. This relationship with those he represents was highlighted in the Mobile Press in 2013, when it was noted that Cam was one of the most active public officials on social media, which Cam believes helps him stay in touch with his constituents and their needs. Cam is married to the former Lindsey Clements and he has one daughter, Riley.

Preventing preventable crimes

I plan on filing legislation that would strengthen our bail laws and prevent those who are accused of especially heinous crimes such as rape, murder, human trafficking or other violent offenses which cause harm to others from getting out on bail and killing again.

Proposed bill inspired by Aniah Blanchard would limit who qualifies for bond

I wrote this bill because it is absolutely needed. I am committed to passing this important legislation to ensure that another life is not lost at the hands of a violent criminal who was granted bond and allowed to be free to roam the streets and attack innocent victims. Our bond laws must change now!

A proposed bill would revoke bond for a list of Alabama's most violent offenses. Sen. Cam Ward (R- Alabaster) says his bill is inspired by Aniah Blanchard, who was kidnapped and killed in 2019. Her accused killer, Ibraheem Yazeed was out on bond for another case involving kidnapping and attempted mu...

Sen. Cam Ward says he'll refile bill to strengthen Alabama open records law

I look forward to pushing this very important issue again in the 2020 session. Public records belong to the taxpayers not government institution. With 21st Century technology we should make it easier to access government documents not maintaining 20th Century barriers based upon outdated record keeping. These records belong to the taxpayers of Alabama and government officials need to remember that we work for the taxpayers, not the other way around.

The state makes it difficult to obtain documents. A bill filed earlier this year ran into trouble from local government groups.

It was great to visit with former Georgia Governor Nathan Deal as he was honored for his work on criminal justice reform in Georgia. He pushed common sense, bi-partisan solutions that promoted re-entry education and addiction treatment programs. By tackling mental health, addiction and work force training Georgia is a model for other states like Alabama to follow.

Thanks for standing for good things for our State and Country 🕊🙏👍🎶🇺🇸
I'm so glad to see you addressing this issue. There are too many getting out on bond & continuing to hurt people or do illegal things. Most often they'll do it again. I've seen it happen too many times. Thanks for serving Cam.
Happy to see new legislation re. No bond for violent offenders. Cupcake and Aniyah needn’t have been gone too soon. Thank you.
Hated to see A. Lee leave City Council! He is s great leader

Hey Cam, can you help out the bus drivers in our state and talk to jay Ivey about getting air conditioners on school buses a state law. This is just a couple of pictures from Chelsea bus drivers this past month with the temps being inhumane. My question is, Would you want your daughter riding one with the temps this high.
We missed you on Saturday at Tinglewood...

Senator Ward, My name is Jamey Sandifer, a friend of Mike Oakley's. I am anxious to speak with you about some programs in which I am involved in the Mobile area. If possible, could you or one of your assistants schedule a brief call in the next week or two? It would be greatly appreciated.
