Is Transparent Aluminum (Aluminum Oxynitride) a good conductor of electricity? Also, is it attracted by a magnet?

No and No.

There are very few transparent electricity conductors (like ITO), and this is not one of them.

Also, I don't see it in a list of common ferromagnetic materials (if that's what you was asking by 'attracted').
