Republican Troy Stubbs announced on Wednesday, Sept. 1, that he is running for the Alabama House of Representatives, District 31. Stubbs currently serves as Chairman of the Elmore County Commission.
“We’ve seen a great deal of economic growth in Elmore County the past six years,” Stubbs said. “We have built a pro-growth business climate through a combination of conservative budgeting principles, aggressive recruitment of jobs, and a focus on quality-of-life issues for the citizens of Elmore County. I believe that I can best continue to serve our central Alabama communities by advocating for our future at the state level.
“I’m a conservative and a small business owner,” he said. “I fully support free markets and the principles of capitalism which promote competition and reward risk takers. I am fully committed to preserving the 2nd Amendment rights of citizens as outlined in the Bill of Rights. I support local control of education. I favor limited government and I’m strongly pro-life.”
Stubbs was born in Charleston, South Carolina. The son of a college football coach, Stubbs’s family lived in six different states before he graduated from high school. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in finance from the University of Alabama. He also holds a master’s degree from the University of Louisville in sports administration, along with a master’s degree in secondary mathematics from Alabama State University.
