(WHNT) – Republican Todd Mitchem announced his candidacy for the Alabama House of Representatives last week.
Mitchem operates in House District 26, which covers parts of Marshall and DeKalb counties.
Mitchem is from Marshall County and the son of the late State Senator Hinton Mitchem.
Previously he worked as a high school and college instructor, but over the past decade he has become more involved with nonprofits like Marshall County CASA and the Shepherd’s Cove Hospice Foundation, where he has sat on the board of directors.
“I am working to do whatever I can to help the people of Marshall County,” Mitchem said in a campaign ad. “I have been able to provide many services through my work with CASA and Hospice. The opportunity to serve more people in an even greater capacity is why I decided to participate in this race for state officials. “
Mitchem is a graduate of Albertville High School and Snead State Community College. He attended Auburn University, where he earned a degree in political science, followed by an MA from the University of Southern Alabama and Jacksonville State University.
While in college, Mitchem interned with US Senator Richard Shelby and former Congressman Tom Bevill.
“As a longtime resident of Marshall County, I know the values of our people and what our community needs to grow and prosper,” said Mitchem. “I believe I can make a difference to improve people’s lives, given the opportunity to serve. “
The Republican primaries will take place on May 24, 2022.
