Alabama first district Republican Congressman Jo Bonner has resigned to take a job as vice chancellor of government relations and economic development at the University of Alabama System. He served in Congress for a decade and represented Washington, Mobile, Baldwin, Escambia and Monroe counties.
Bonner was elected to office when I worked in Mobile and he is one of the finest men you’ll ever meet. The University of Alabama system’s gain is Washington’s loss. He is one of the good guys.
