MEET YOUR COMMISSIONERS
DAVID CAMPBELL, DISTRICT ONE
My name is David C. Campbell, plain and simple. I am 52 years old. I was born in Andalusia, AL. I was raised on our family farm and I am a 5th generation farmer. I am married to Kathy Campbell and have been for a over 30 years. We have three children, one daughter-in-law, and two son-in-law and 9 grandchildren. I was raised by my parents Clayton and Lottie Campbell and I have two sisters Pam Seales and Lisa Williams. God has blessed me with a wonderful family.
I have attended Sweet Home Baptist Church in McKenzie, AL for over thirty years. God has blessed me with many good opportunities and I feel being raised on our family farm was one of them. My wife and I are raising our grandchildren on our family farm and I pray that we can make a big difference in their lives.
I attended McKenzie High School and after graduation I continued to work on our family farm as well as work with my Dad in his construction business. Upon completion of the poultry houses I was able to come home and run our family farm full time. Last year (2016) I decided to step out and run for county Commissioner for Conecuh County District 1. I have met so many people and have been blessed by each person that I have met.
I have enjoyed my life very much. I have no regrets, although I have made some mistakes in my life I just think I have gained some valuable experiences through my mistakes.
