Wasyluka enters race for State Senate, District 2

MADISON – Amy Wasyluka of Madison has announced her candidacy to represent District 2 in the Alab+ama State Senate.

State Sen. Bill Holtzclaw is not seeking re-election for this seat and has entered the race for U.S. Representative for Alabama, District 5.

Wasyluka conducted her campaign kickoff on Nov. 13 at Insanity Complex in Madison.

Wasyluka is a local appellate attorney, mother and cancer survivor who is vying for the State Senate seat in the Alabama 2018 General Election. Amy was born in Troy, Alabama and adopted when she was six months old. Her parents served as educators in Alabama for 20-plus years.

When Wasyluka was 17 years old, she was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Amy attended Auburn University and developed a lifelong desire to serve her community, which led her to major in political science.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in political science in 2006 and went on to study law at the University Of Alabama School Of Law. She earned a law degree in 2009. Since law school, Amy has worked in various legal areas, including family law, bankruptcy, civil litigation and appeals.

Through the practice of law, Wasyluka learned how to work with parties on all sides of an issue, the value of common sense and the value of hard work and research, according to her announcement. She believes Alabama deserves politicians who are willing to use common sense to confront the realities and challenges before the state’s citizens.

Wasyluka said her background “as an attorney, a childhood cancer survivor and a mother will enable me to advocate for the needs of District 2 with common sense and compassion.”

She is married to Tim Wasyluka, who is a member of Alabama Army National Guard and serves as a civilian contract attorney for the U.S. Army. The Wasylukas moved to Madison in 2011. They have a three-year-old daughter and two dogs.
