Twinkle Cavanaugh

The Alabama Farmers Federation political action committee, Alabama FarmPAC, has endorsed Twinkle Andress Cavanaugh for re-election as Alabama Public Service Commission (PSC) president. 

Federation President Jimmy Parnell said Cavanaugh’s years of notable leadership and advocacy for sound energy policy make her a top candidate for Alabama farmers. 

“We respect Twinkle’s honorable reputation of protecting Alabama energy production from liberal policies while practicing conservative values,” Parnell said. “Providing reliable and affordable energy to the state’s farmers while saving taxpayer dollars is something we are confident will continue under Twinkle’s leadership.” 

Cavanaugh was most recently re-elected PSC president in 2020, a role she has served in since 2012. She was first elected a PSC commissioner in 2010. Cavanaugh is a staunch proponent of using multiple resources for energy production, including coal, natural gas, hydro, solar, wind and nuclear energy. 

Prior to her work at the PSC, Cavanaugh served as chair of the Alabama Republican Party from 2005 to 2007. She held several roles in Gov. Bob Riley’s administration, including senior adviser and deputy chief of staff. 

A native of Montgomery, Cavanaugh and husband Jeff, a veterinarian, are co-owners of Cavanaugh Bradley Animal Hospital. They are active members of First Baptist Church in Montgomery and have three children.
