Gary Palmer is born and raised in Alabama and has literally gone from the outhouse to the White House in a story of the American Dream and servant leadership. Gary serves as the 6th District Representative for Alabama. Gary is a huge proponent of a strong family and constitutional principles. He also has a heart for raising up young leaders and wants to see future statesmen, not politicians, emerge in our country. He has been shot at for his beliefs and still does not back down in the face of danger to his person or career.
