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.”
The Republican primary for the 2022 statewide elections will be held May 24. 2022.
