Two Shepherds among the flock

There are two Rep. Shepherds in the House of Representatives now – Rep. Mary Lou Shepherd, D-Prichard, now is joined by Rep. Paul Shepherd, R-Riggins, who defeated longtime Democratic Rep. Chuck Cuddy in the fall election. To make matters just a bit more confusing, when it came time for representatives to select their seats in the House chamber, the new Shepherd picked a seat right next to Mary Lou’s.

But the House has ways of keeping from mixing them up. Mary Lou is listed as Shepherd(2) – the Shepherd from District 2. Paul is Shepherd(8) – the one from District 8.
