Josh Pendergrass

Josh Pendergrass, emphasizing his commitment to conservative values and advancing the American Dream, announced that he is running for District 88 of the Alabama House of Representatives. Pendergrass is a former communications director for Gov. Kay Ivey and the Alabama Policy Institute.

“I humbly come before the people of District 88 with a desire to make a difference,” said Pendergrass. “I’m concerned that the American Dream is becoming less and less of a reality for more and more people, and we need a representative who will change that. Our district needs a voice that will stand up for truth who will fight hard to grow educational opportunities and will be a catalyst to help bring good-paying jobs to our community.”

“It starts with protecting our God-given rights and abiding by our conservative values, like defending the unborn, fighting for the Second Amendment and standing for less government,” Pendergrass said.

Pendergrass is a local small businessman, Baptist pastor and lawyer.

District 88 is currently represented by State Rep. Will Dismukes, R-Prattville. Dismukes is facing criminal charges from his former employer alleging that he stole tools and materials when he left to form his own custom flooring company. The Alabama Republican Primary will be on May 24, 2024.

HD88, like every House district in the state, faces reapportionment and redistricting before the 2022 election.
