Reneé Powers was elected Alabama Republican Party regional chairman of Congressional Districts 3, 6, 7 at the ALGOP Winter meeting of the State Executive Committee on Saturday, February 25, at the Birmingham Sheraton. Congressional Districts 3, 6, and 7 represents 32 counties — Bibb, Blount, Calhoun, Chambers, Chilton, Choctaw, Clarke, Clay, Cleburne, Coosa, Dallas, Greene, Hale, Jefferson, Lee, Lowndes, Macon, Marengo, Montgomery, Perry, Pickens, Randolph, Russell, Shelby, St. Clair, Sumter Talladega, Tallapoosa, Tuscaloosa, and Wilcox counties. 

“I am honored that my ALGOP State Executive Committee members in Districts 3, 6, 7 have given me this opportunity to continuing serving and have confidence in my leadership,” Powers said.

As regional chairman, she will serve on the state Republican Party Steering Committee. The committee is the main governing body of the Alabama Republican Party. The committee helps to define the direction of the State Party while preserving and promoting the foundational platform of the Republican Party. 

“I am a Conservative Republican who believes in one nation under God, individual liberty, personal responsibility, limited government, limited spending, limited taxes, the creation of jobs through free market economic opportunity, homeland security and a compassion for the truly needed,” Powers stated. “It is with these principles I look forward to continuing my service to the Alabama Republican Party and the counties that I will represent.”

Powers has served on the county and state executive committees of the Alabama Republican Party since 2010. She has served in leadership with both the county and state Republican Party. She was elected as a Delegate as well as Alternate Delegate to the Republican National Convention every Presidential election since 2008. Also, she has been elected three times by Chilton County voters to serve on the State Republican Executive Committee Place 1 for Chilton County. Secretary of State John Merrill appointed her in 2017 to the AL Fair Ballot Commission and she was reappointed in 2021 for another four-year term. Also, she continues to serve on the Alabama Mighty Strike Force “getting out the vote” for Republican candidates in battle ground states nationwide through her grassroots efforts in recruiting volunteers; publicizing efforts thru social media as well as knocking on doors.

Powers has been married to Tom Powers for 47 years and retired in 1998 after teaching kindergarten for 25 years. In her retirement years, she has volunteered to promote Republican causes and candidates as well as a variety of community service projects. Powers stated, “I will work to support and encourage Republican leadership locally, statewide, and nationally as well as keep voters informed of current Republican issues and news.”
