Larry Stallings

Stallings is a third-generation farmer and cattleman from the Rome community and is married to Vickie (Jacobs) Stallings. They have two daughters, Stacey Martin and Ashley Odom, and four grandchildren. Larry and Vickie are members of Carolina Baptist Church.

He was employed with the Solon Dixon Forestry Education Center as a forester for 26 years. He has served as the president of the Andalusia Farmers Cooperative for 17 years. He believes that his duties as president have gained him much experience by being a part of the decision-making in AFC funds in a wise manner that benefits the Andalusia Farmers Cooperative.

“My primary goal, as with the Alabama Farmers Cooperative, is to continue the practice of spending our tax dollars wisely and keeping the public informed of any new business. My commitment to the taxpayers is to oversee how your dollars are used in the best interest of Covington County,” Stallings said.

For the past five years, Stallings has managed the Covington County Arena. During this time, he has worked directly and in close conjunction with the commissioner’s office to restore and maintain the Covington County Arena. By restoring the arena to its original purpose (and then some) sources have reported that many additional tax dollars have been brought into Covington County and the City of Andalusia. Through the hard work and dedication of the county, more revenue has been generated.

As a result, through their hard work and dedication, more revenue has been generated for Covington County and also for the city.

If elected, Stallings plans to work just as hard for the taxpayers as commissioner for District 3.

“I believe that open communication and hard work are two of the most important responsibilities of a commissioner. I ask for your vote on March 5; together, we can continue to make Covington County an even better place for all,” Stallings said.
