Bio

Former Limestone County Commissioner Ben Harrison (R) formally announced the kickoff of his campaign for Alabama House District 2 (HD2) this week. HD2 covers portions of Lauderdale and Limestone Counties.

Harrison is a life-long resident of Alabama. He attended Owens Junior High and West Limestone High School. After graduating from high school in 1978, he attended Calhoun Community College and Auburn University, obtaining a degree in Engineering. During his professional career, Ben worked as the Technical Services Manager overseeing Industrial Engineering, Process Control, and Environmental Engineering for Kohler.

"I grew up on my family farm between Athens and Rogersville and learned a lot about the values of hard work, honesty, and integrity from my family" Harrison said. "I am definitely not your normal political candidate. I have an engineering degree from Auburn University, and always look for common sense and conservative solutions to the problems we face. Those are values that I believe we need in Montgomery." Harrison served two terms on the Limestone County Commission from 2012 to 2020.

"I am running for state House because I am deeply concerned about the future of our state and nation" Harrison said. "We need elected officials who believe in the Constitution and are willing to stand for the values of the people who elect them. I am a Christian and conservative who firmly believes in the vision of our founding fathers. People deserve to have their rights protected and their values defended, and that is exactly what I will do if elected to the state House." In 2020, Harrison was elected statewide as a Delegate to the Republican National Convention for President Donald Trump.

"The state of Alabama is going to be facing a lot of challenges over the coming years, and it's important that we face those challenges responsibly" Harrison said. "I am a strong fiscal conservative, and my record working with the county commission shows that. I want to keep taxes as low as possible for the people of Alabama. Quite simply, I believe we need to have the courage to cut wasteful spending instead of raising taxes. I also think it's important that state government defend our citizens from federal overreach. Government at every level should be defending people's rights, and not infringing on them. Whether it's Joe Biden's vaccine mandates or your right to keep and bear arms, I will defend your freedoms in the state House." He is married to Beth McGuire Harrison, and they have four children.

"As a father and grandfather, education is another issue that is incredibly important to me. I am invested in the future we are leaving for the next generation, and I want to protect our children so they can be successful in the years to come" Harrison said. "Parents know what is best for their children, and I am committed to working with them and local teachers to help improve our education system. I believe we need to keep Critical Race Theory and Common Core out of our schools and get back to teaching the basics." In 2001, Ben left the corporate world and started his own small business with his family.
