State Senator Shadrack McGill

Republican state Sen. Shadrack McGill of Woodville has decided one term in the Senate is enough.

McGill pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the 2010 election when he beat Democratic Senate leader Lowell Barron of Fyffe.

McGill told the Times-Journal in Fort Payne that serving in Montgomery puts a strain on a family, and that contributed to his decision not to run in 2014.
