Melton To Host Campaign Kick-Off

By Beth Clayton

MONTGOMERY—Representative Darrio Melton will host a campaign kick-off event to announce his intention to run for reelection for a second term in the State House.

Melton was elected in 2010 to represent the 67th district, which covers all of Dallas County and parts of Perry County.

So far, no one has announced intent to challenge Melton in the primary or to run as a Republican. The district is heavily favored for a Democratic candidate.

The kick-off event will be completely free and open to the public, with appearances by local elected leaders, community activists, grassroots supporters, and local artists.

The campaign is inviting local church choirs to perform and planning to serve food from businesses in our area, Melton said. “I want to highlight the great community we have here.”

“I want to offer an opportunity for the community to come together and spend some time in fellowship—parents, children, neighbors and friends,” Melton says.

The invitation is open to the community. All community members are welcome to attend.  According to the Facebook page for the event, more than 5,000 people have been invited.

“I work for the people of the 67th district. I’m always excited by new opportunities to engage with the people I represent and get to know them better,” Melton says.
