Mobile’s Newest Legislator Ready To Work

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Mobile’s newest lawmaker says she’s ready to get to work.  We caught up with Adline Clarke on Tuesday at the start of the legislative session.  She was ceremoniously sworn in on the first day.  Clarke says she has a lot of reading to do with 80 bills pre-filed before the session event started.  We asked her if she’s worried about losing enthusiasm as she learns more about the challenges of being a legislator.

“I'm not overly concerned about that because I've been around for some decades, my background is newspaper journalism so I have some idea what goes on here,” says Clarke.  She says she’s introducing a bill to tidy up Mobile’s quiet title law.  That legislation assists the city in selling homes that have been vacant for many years.  Clarke fills the seat once held by the late Yvonne Kennedy.
