Pledges To Be a True Conservative For the 6th District.
HOOVER, AL, October 05, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Prominent Alabama businessman and Republican, Gerrick Wilkins announces that he will be running for Alabama’s 6th Congressional District. Wilkins pledged if elected to be a true conservative and bring Alabama solutions and values to the U.S. House. He noted that America is at a crossroads and a strong conservative vision is needed to change the nation’s current trajectory and that he will be able to bring that vision to the House. Wilkins is running as a strong fiscal conservative advocating a Balanced Budget Amendment and as a true reformer calling for congressional term limits. He observed that for too many, including the incumbent, serving in Congress has become a fulltime job and not the citizen politician that the founding fathers envisioned, and that President Ronald Reagan advocated. Wilkins is calling for the abolishment of the federal Department of Education, with its duties being returned to the states and local communities where education belongs. He pledges to fight against the woke indoctrination that we are seeing nationally in public schools and be a staunch advocate for parental rights and school choice.
“It is with deep humility and responsibility that I enter the race for Alabama’s 6th District,” said Gerrick Wilkins. “In 1964, Ronald Reagan said that our nation had reached a time of choosing, if that was true then it is especially true today.
“Like President Reagan, I believe both Alabama’s and our nation’s best days lie ahead of us,” continued Wilkins. “Yet we can not achieve this greatness with our current trajectory. We must change course and that means changing representation in Washington.
“Daily we see the dysfunction in Washington, D.C. where career politicians have made the halls of Congress, a lobbyist’s paradise,” continued Wilkins. “This must end. That is why I am supporting term limits for Congress and will work tirelessly to see that it enacted. Only with term limits will we be able to drain the swamp.
“Economically, the failed policies of Joe Biden and career politicians are bankrupting our nation and future. This must end. That is why I am supporting a Balanced Budget Amendment. If families must balance their budget, so must the federal government,” continued Wilkins.
“Education is supposed to unlock the potential of every child and put them on the path for a great future. Sadly, our education system has become an indoctrination center for the far left and its woke agenda. That is why we must abolish the federal Department of Education, return education to the states and local communities, and allow parental choice in education decisions,” stated Wilkins.
“Together we can bring commonsense Alabama values and solutions to Congress,” concluded Wilkins. “I pledge in Congress to be the representative of the 6th District and not D.C. insiders.”
About Gerrick Wilkins
After witnessing the failed policies of career politicians, the overreach of government regulations, the increased tax burden on small businesses, and the attacks on the family by the left, Gerrick Wilkins decided to take up the banner and run for Congress to represent Alabama as a servant leader. Gerrick is committed to serving a maximum of three terms in office to help restore our founding father’s vision of a citizen legislature.
Gerrick Wilkins took to heart the quote from President Ronald Reagan, “We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.” This quote encouraged Gerrick to get involved in his local church, serving as a deacon and lay leader, engage in mission work locally and globally, and work with Gideons International. Gerrick is a principled man of faith and is a Christian who loves the Lord. His faith and family have encouraged him to pursue a calling to this period of civil service. Over the years, he has committed significant time and personal resources to missions and philanthropic work locally to help his community in Alabama and worldwide. Gerrick also serves on several local advisory boards, including one for Mission Increase and Samford University’s Brock School of Business.
Gerrick knows it is only by the blessings of God that our country has enjoyed bountiful prosperity. Gerrick will work hard to combat the leftist, woke agenda attacking our religious freedoms and trying to break down our family.

Gerrick is a loving husband to his incredible wife of 24 years, Carol, and a devoted father to their amazing daughter, Hanna.

He attended Pensacola Christian College, where he met his wife and earned a bachelor’s degree in theology from Liberty University. Gerrick has been a strong proponent of lifelong learning, and during his professional career, he returned and earned a master’s in business administration from Samford University.
From a young age, Gerrick has been interested in how our country is governed, working on several local campaigns while in high school. After working a lifetime to build a successful career, Gerrick is disheartened with the direction of our nation. He is writing a book on congressional term limits and the problem of career politicians.
Gerrick is an American business leader with over 24 years of private sector experience in the automotive industry. His experience managing large-scale dealerships and helping other community-based dealers grow has allowed him to earn great success and achieve the American dream. During his time managing dealerships in Alabama, Gerrick has learned firsthand of the constant heartaches small businesses must contend from overregulation and excessive tax policies. Gerrick’s real-world experience allows him to understand business owners’ daily challenges.
Gerrick believes we need citizens to stand up and say, “We don’t want career politicians anymore. We want citizen lawmakers.” It is time for us to end the cycle of corruption that persists from lifelong careers in government. Our country needs a change now.
