Welcome, and thank you for taking time to visit our website. I'm Ron Bolton and I'm seeking the Republican Party’s nomination for State House District 61 in the 2022 primary election. This is my first run for public office. I am a retired Captain with the Northport Police Department, and a 26 year resident of our district. I am a life-long conservative and solid supporter of our public safety personnel. I’m running for the Alabama Legislature because I understand the importance of strong representation in Montgomery. My campaign will focus on four key issues that are vital for the future of Tuscaloosa and Pickens counties.
  • I’ll work to expand Rural Broadband access to our district;
  • I won’t give up on our financially struggling rural healthcare initiatives;
  • I’ll fight to make sure our counties and cities get our fair share of road and bridge funds from the state;
  • and I’ll work with state and local economic development leaders to bring good-paying jobs to Pickens and Tuscaloosa counties.
During my 25 year career with the department I worked in a variety of leadership capacities, including serving as both Administrative and Patrol Division Commander. I also served as a long-time instructor at the University of Alabama Law Enforcement Academy, served as the department's Tactical Unit Commander, and spent many years serving on the Board of Directors for Turning Point Services. I am a graduate of session 220 of the FBI National Academy.

If elected to serve in the Alabama House of Representatives, my job will be to produce for our communities. I humbly ask for the consideration and votes of my neighbors and friends in district 61. Our House District (61) includes most of Northport, the town of Coker, portions of northwest Tuscaloosa County, and all of Pickens County. The district is currently represented by Representative Rodney Sullivan, who announced earlier this month he would not seek re-election.

My wife Sharon and I have been married for 31 years. I have two children, two grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. I'm an active member of the Tuscaloosa County Republican Executive Committee, the Alabama Republican State Executive Committee, and Five Points Baptist Church in Northport.
