Cook seeking revenue commissioner post

Published 12:00 am Friday, January 31, 2014

Cindy Stovall Cook of Andalusia has announced that she is seeking the office of Covington County revenue commissioner in the Republican primary.


Cook has practiced real estate for 22 years, and said she has learned much about the job duties of the revenue commissioner, including appraising and mapping. She also has managed these companies in which she was responsible for accounting and management.

Cook has lived in Covington County since 1973. She attended Florala High School and then went on to attend LBW for two years, studying accounting/business. She reared three sons in Covington County , Hugh and Justin Stovall and Andrew Cook, and is now enjoying two grandchildren with one more on the way.

“I have a strong business background,” Cook said. “Having your own business for so many years prepares you for the ups and downs and teaches you how to work with people and helps one build a strong character. I am pursuing the revenue commissioner’s job as my new career and just another way to work for the people of Covington County.”

Cook said she is the granddaughter of immigrants.

“My grandparents were immigrants,” she said. “They came to America in 1913 to Ellis Island where they were processed as they called it back then. Without their fearless actions I would not have been born an American or had the privilege to run for a political office such as revenue commissioner. I am honored to be an American and thank all of those who have fought for our rights to be free as Americans.”

Alabama will hold primary elections in June, and the General Election in November.
