MADISON COUNTY – Businessman and community leader Andy Whitt is seeking the Alabama House of Representatives, District 6 vacancy in the June 5, 2018 primary election.
Rep. Phil Williams has reconsidered his initial decision and will not run for re-election.
“I want to put my finance and business experience to work for the people of this district and our state,” Whitt said. “It’s time we do more with less, cut the wasteful spending and put hard-working families first.”
“Just like I run our community bank, I will make sure our state is held accountable and a check-and-balance system is in place. I will work hard to make sure we receive our fair share of support for our roads and schools. Moving our economy in the right direction is imperative. I will work hard with state and local leaders to bring more jobs and industries to North Alabama,” Whitt said.
“Last year was a tough time for our state. It’s time for conservative leadership, moral values and integrity. My life experiences have prepared me for this opportunity,” Whitt said.
Whitt and his family are lifelong Madison County residents. He and wife Jennifer have been married 20 years. Jennifer Whitt works as Assistant Principal at Sparkman Middle School.
The Whitt’s children are Grant and Emma Drew, both Sparkman students. The family attends Mt. Zion Baptist Church.
