Lucy Baxley Qualifies to Run for Alabama PSC President
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Former Lt. Gov. Lucy Baxley is officially back in politics after suffering a stroke. Baxley filed qualifying papers with the state Democratic Party on Monday to run for president of the Alabama Public Service Commission.

Baxley had a stroke after losing the general election for governor in November 2006. Baxley said Monday the stroke didn't diminish her passion for public service. She said she will campaign all over the state, but won't make as many appearances as she did in her race for governor.

No other Democrats have announced for the post being vacated by Republican Jim Sullivan. Former state Republican Party Chairwoman Twinkle Andress Cavanaugh is the only Republican who has announced, but others are considering it.
