Rep. Rolanda Hollis
Rep. Rolanda Hollis, D-Birmingham, was sworn in as the newest member of the House of Representatives Tuesday following her victory in a special election March 7.
Hollis was endorsed by FarmPAC, a political action committee of the Alabama Farmers Federation. She defeated two Democratic challengers with 62 percent of the vote. Hollis, a real estate broker, fills the District 58 seat vacated by Rep. Oliver Robinson, who retired last year.
