Madison City Councilman, Teddy Powell, announced on Wednesday that he will be seeking the Republican Nomination in the Alabama House District 10 Special Election. Powell, a lifelong Republican, and longtime resident of Madison cited his passion for service, dedication to his community, and his hope to bring the successes of the City of Madison to the State House as his primary reason for running.
“The people of Madison deserve to have their voices heard in Montgomery by a person who they know, respect, and trust. For the past six years I’ve enjoyed focusing on economic development here in Madison that brings jobs and opportunities, investing in our schools and education systems, as well as working to enhance the quality and safety of our infrastructure locally,” Powell stated, going on to say, “I’m running for House District 10 with the encouragement of my family, many local friends and neighbors. I hope to focus on taking the successes we’ve seen in Madison to Montgomery to increase the quality of life around Alabama for everyone that lives in or visits our state.”
Powell has served as a Budget Analyst for the Department of Defense for many years, recently retiring from that position, as well as having a long resume of service to his community most notably as a City Councilman in Madison’s third district, where he helped oversee the City’s rapidly growing population and budget. Madison was ranked in the #1 place to live in Alabama as recently as July.
“I’m proud to call Madison my home. I’m honored to serve on the council, and I am excited about the opportunity to serve the people of my home as their voice in Montgomery. I look forward to meeting the voters in District 10, listening to their concerns, and earning their vote. I’ve always enjoyed working hard and this campaign will be no different; I plan to work hard, share my ideas, and run a strong campaign.” remarked Powell.
Governor Ivey announced in early September that the Special Republican Primary for House District 10 will be on Tuesday, December 12th.
