Teddy Powell pursues re-election to Madison City Council, District 3

MADISON – Teddy Powell, incumbent District 3 Councilman on Madison City Council, is seeking re-election to the post.

Powell has been honored to serve District 3 residents and the City of Madison, he said. “While there have been many positive improvements, I believe the momentum must be continued through experienced, strong leadership.”

“I work here, and I have raised my family here. I am invested in our city and district as a whole, and I want to see Madison thrive,” Powell said.

“Now is the time, more than ever, that we continue our comprehensive plan regarding our residential growth, infrastructure, schools and economy,” Powell said. “While this mayor and council have accomplished many things over the last four years, there are a few projects that need to be completed in order for Madison to achieve its full potential for future generations.”

Powell emphasizes the need for continued development and sustained support in specific areas:

* Continue smart growth — Continue with the first-ever strategic, smart growth plan that was developed with input from both the School Growth Committee and Madison Board of Education to benefit the city and award-winning Madison City Schools.

* Increase economic development – Collaborate with neighboring cities and counties to create a comprehensive and inclusive growth plan. Continue to recruit new businesses to the area, while sustaining and supporting our current businesses.

* Strengthen infrastructure – Continue to provide improved infrastructure — to include roads, greenspaces and recreation — for greater quality of life in Madison.

* Revitalize and preserve – Redevelop Madison Boulevard, continue to preserve and support downtown and revitalize aging shopping centers and areas of commerce.

“I am proud to call Madison home and look forward to our family growing and staying in this wonderful city,” Powell said.

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

Teddy and wife Rikki have lived in Madison for 16 years and the Huntsville/Madison area for 26 years. They work for the Department of Defense, supporting finance and contract management. They serve on the finance committee and as trustees at their church in downtown Madison.

Their three children, Jackson, Morgan and Riley, attended Madison City Schools and currently are attending both the University of Alabama in Huntsville and Calhoun Community College.
