The Business Council of Alabama (BCA) announced Friday that the board of directors of ProgressPAC, BCA’s pro-jobs political affiliate, will endorse Teddy Powell in the special election for Alabama House of Representatives District 10.

Powell has served as a city councilman in Madison’s District 3 since 2016 and recently retired from the Department of Defense, where he worked as a budget analyst.

Throughout his tenure on the Madison City Council, Powell has prioritized education, strategic economic and infrastructure development, preservation and revitalization, and business expansion within the city. 

Powell serves on the council’s Finance Committee, the Industrial Development Board, and the Zoning Board of Adjustments and Appeals, and is the council representative to the Historic Society.

“ProgressPAC firmly believes in endorsing candidates who share our commitment to creating a stronger business landscape throughout Alabama. Our endorsements reflect a vision of sustainable economic growth across the state,” said ProgressPAC Chairman Mark Drew. “We are proud to stand behind candidates who champion the interests of Alabama’s businesses and hard-working Alabamians.”

Powell received a business administration and finance degree from Birmingham Southern College and a master’s in business administration from the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

House District 10 encompasses South and West Huntsville, Madison, Triana, and Redstone Arsenal.
