History and Prior Commisioners

Commonly called the PSC, the commission has often served as a stepping stone for elected commissioners to run for higher offices.
Commissioners B.B. Comer and Gordon Persons were elected governor of Alabama.
Commissioner C.C. "Jack" Owen ran for governor but lost.
Commissioner Jim Folsom Jr. was elected Lt. Governor in 1986 and was re-elected in 1990. He was elevated to the governor's office in 1993 upon the felony conviction of Gov. Guy Hunt. As an incumbent, he was defeated in the gubernatorial election in 1994 by Fob James and stayed out of politics for 12 years. Folsom made a comeback in 2006 when he was elected lt. gov. again, where he now (2009) serves. He is currently seeking to be re-elected as Lt. Governor for a second term in the 2010 elections, and is being challenged by Republican candidate Kay Ivey. Folsom is the son and namesake of two-time Alabama governor James E. "Big Jim" Folsom, famous for being a progressive on civil rights when it was unpopular to be so.
Commissioner Jim Zeigler ran for state supreme court, civil appeals court, state treasurer and state auditor, losing each by narrow margins, thus earning the nickname "Mr. 49%." He made a comeback in 2004 when he shocked the political establishment by defeating Republican National Committeeman and former Chief Justice Perry Hooper Sr. for Statewide Delegate to the Republican National Convention. Hooper is a founder of the modern Republican Party of Alabama and had been expected to win handily. [1]
