Marshall County Republican Party member Brock Colvin announced Monday his campaign for Alabama House District 26.

The district is currently occupied by fourth-term incumbent Rep. Kerry Rich, R-Guntersville, who is not running for re-election. 

“Representative Kerry Rich has been a good public servant,” Colvin said in a statement Monday. “With God’s grace and the trust of the voters of District 26, I hope to continue to represent them well.”

Brock said in a statement Monday he believes he will “bring the conservative philosophy and energy” in representing Marshall and Dekalb Counties.

“I believe in helping our farmers and our agricultural industry. I will be [a] champion for them and property rights,” Colvin said. “Education is vital to our area and I will work to ensure vocational and technical training is expanded in our area so we can create a more skilled workforce. Finally, it is essential that we expand rural broadband in Alabama. In today’s virtual workplace, we can only succeed with this connectivity.”

Brock, a fifth-generation resident of Marshall County, is a graduate of Albertville High School, attended Snead Community College in Boaz, and graduated from the University of Alabama with a double major in finance and economics. He is a financial planner at Ameriprise Financial and has previously worked in the insurance industry.

“My background in finance gives me the skill I will need to roll up my sleeves and protect our tax dollars,” Colvin said. “We are taxed enough. I will work for lower taxes and better fiscal responsibility out of state government.”

It’s hard to beat an incumbent. It takes lots of money, moxie and muscle.

Shorty was maybe the most colorful political clown to ever appear on the Alabama political stage.
