Countdown to the General Election


Meet Terri

I believe that the people of Morgan County deserve representation that they can be proud of. I am not a career politician; I'm a citizen who believes strongly that education is the solution to all of our countries problems, and that economic development is the key to making our community better for all of us. And I'm willing to work to make sure that our government is working for us, the people.

I am proud and humbled to be given the opportunity to serve the people of Morgan County and the State of Alabama.

In Office

During my time in office, I have produced real results for Alabama, and will continue to defend our conservative beliefs.  

Terri Collins continues to lead with direction and purpose. Finally, a candidate that is really making a difference for us.
— Larry Little, CEO of Eagle Consulting

Biography & Experience

The first requisite of a good citizen in this Republic of ours is that he shall be able and willing to pull his weight; that he shall not be a mere passenger, but shall do his share in the work that each generation of us finds ready to hand; and, furthermore, that in doing his work he shall show, not only the capacity for sturdy self-help, but also self-respecting regard for the rights of others.
— Theodore Roosevelt

I was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. I met my husband Tom while we were both in college at the University of Alabama. Shortly after getting married, we moved to Decatur in 1982 and raised our three children here.  I served as the Vice President of Marketing and Sales of a bank for 16 years before election to the House of Representatives in 2010.
