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.

As COVID-19 closes courts, Alabama prosecutors face collapse in revenues

In addition to the severe economic impact that has been decimated Alabama's small businesses, our criminal justice system has ground to a halt due to the COVID-19 shutdown. District Attorneys and our courts rely heavily on the fees they collect to operate. With a drop in fine and restitution collection we will see even longer times for people to have their day in court, whether it is someone who has been harmed or someone who is entitled to fair trial. I am glad to be working with Alabama District Attorney's Association and our courts to get this resolved in the budget process.

District attorneys get 70 percent of their income from court fees. With courts closed, prosecutors face a potential disaster.

Happy birthday Cam I hope you have a blessed day. I look forward to getting Helena Beef’s open soon so I can see you and you sweet family.
Can you please investigate what is going on with Medicaid dropping the 30 day limit for prescription refills? Those of us who have disabled children on waiver programs need to be able to have time to refill meds and thoroughly sanitize (or in some cases allow items to sit for several days) before anything comes into our homes. This is causing a huge burden and risk to the sickest kids in Alabama. Thank you!
I just read your "about me" and I was not impressed. NOT ONCE was anything mentioned about the Constitution of the State of Alabama nor the US Constitution. Freedom means leaving the other guy alone! Even if he does something which you do not approve.
Voting for you Mr Ward!
What is you stance on Red Flag laws. Also recently in our great state here was a Muslium training camp located in your neck of the woods, this is starting to seem a normal thing in America. The last administration let a lot of certain types come to our shores. With out vetting them, more than a shake and smile.. Thank you you are, God bless you and family
What is your position on the Constitution concerning the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 10th amendments and our rights protected by them. Where can a list of your donors be found and finally who are you going to support in the senate race? If our views are similar I will lend my support to you.
Glad to see you in Gadsden at the Republican Dinner.
Good luck Sir.
Sir I am afraid you,Mc Clendon & a few others are the only Adults left in the Republican Alabama state room! We are a family of 10 voting Republicans thanks for giving us a choice. Most of the rest just do PCI'S bidding & we want them out.
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.
