Thursday, January 11, 2018, Colbert County Commissioner David Black announced his candidacy for state treasurer.

Black is an Economics professor at the University of North Alabama.

Black said in a statement that he plans to focus on growing the College Counts 529 Fund, encouraging the use of the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) savings plan, and promoting sound fiscal policy for Alabama.

Black is a former White House staff member under the George H.W. Bush Administration and former professor at the University of Alabama. Black is currently the Director of the Small Business Development Center at the University of North Alabama.

Commissioner Black is very involved in the community.  He is the President of the Board of Directors for the Colbert County Tourism Bureau, President of the Board of Directors for the Shoals Symphony at the U.N.A., and represents district one for the Alabama County Commission Association.

Last Thursday, Alabama Commissioner of Agriculture and Industries John McMillan told the Alabama Political Reporter that he is running for the Republican nomination for State Treasurer.

At this point, no one has formally qualified for the office of state Treasurer with the Republican Party.

Current State Treasurer Young Boozer is prevented from running for another term because of term limits.

The major party primaries will be on June 5, 2018.
