The Alabama Farmers Federation has endorsed Madison City Councilman Teddy Powell for Alabama House 10, which covers portions of Madison County.
“Teddy Powell is a strong conservative who understands the needs of the people of this district,” said Charles Butler, Madison County Farmers Federation president. “He will take his conservative values and strong work ethic with him to represent us all in Montgomery.”
Powell is a first-generation college graduate. He graduated with a B.S. degree in Business Administration from Birmingham Southern College. While balancing both career and family, he received his M.A. degree in Business Administration from the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
Powell has enjoyed a successful career with more than 12 years of federal civilian experience as a budget analyst with the Department of Defense. He has also worked in the baking industry and for a revenue department.
“It is no secret that farmers are the backbone of Alabama’s economy, and I’m honored to have their endorsement and support in this race,” Powell said. “Since being elected to the Madison City Council, I’ve worked every day to ensure that our local economy thrives in every sector possible. As the state representative for District 10, I’ll continue this commitment by working to ensure Alabama remains one of the most farm-friendly states in America.”
Powell and his wife, Rikki, have been married 18 years and have three adult children. They attend a local Methodist church.
The Alabama Farmers Federation is the state’s largest farm organization with more than 350,000 members. It uses a true grassroots approach to select candidates, relying on FarmPAC endorsements from county Federation boards for local elections.
