Conversations with Alex Stovall

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alex Stovall.

Hi Alex, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I was born and raised by my Great Aunt in Tucson, Arizona, growing up in a single parent household. It goes almost without saying that I came up facing many hardships, especially growing up in a neighborhood gripped in a gravity well of multigenerational poverty, crime, hopelessness, perpetuated by decades of failed democrat policies that have essentially created an environment of perpetual government dependency, social dysfunction, and fatherless (or broken) homes. As a youth, I believed that Football would be the only way I could get out from what I call the Democrat plantation. My neighborhood wasn’t unique in that fact, there are dysfunctional democrat plantations in almost every city now. The good news is…God had a better plan for my life.

After High School, I enlisted to serve in the United States Army Reserves, later deploying to the Pacific to serve in the Infantry division as a Supply Sergeant.  While in the Reserves, I earned my bachelor’s and master’s degree from Grand Canyon University. Presently, in addition to running for office to become the Republican nominee for Congress in District 9, I am also working on my PhD (in philosophy and general psychology).

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?Running for office, historically speaking going back to our Country’s founding, has never been obstacle free nor would it be fair to say that it has been easy either. I suspect the contrary would more often be true for most. Exciting? Yes! Walking every neighborhood in my district knocking on doors? Yes! A walk in the park? No!

Competitive campaigns, just like competitive sports, have their up and down moments on the field. You just hope that all the hard work, and all the preparation, leads to putting more points on the board than the other team. Honestly, we need more people who love America to come out and run for office to help save our country from a globalist / communist takeover, but make no mistake, it’s not going to be an easy run. I will say a campaign runs relatively smoother when you have great volunteers and a home team like mine that cheers and fosters an encouraging environment of perseverance to fight on. 

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
While I continue to serve in the United States Army Reserves, my congressional campaign and my community volunteer work has become a full-time effort. In order to help the people in our community to break free from ever increasing government dependency, to strengthen our families, to restore access to a quality education free of indoctrination and expand economic opportunity for everyone so all of us can realize our American dream, my commitment to my supporters and to those in my community will remain on working hard to win this campaign so that we can restore our voice in Congress.  

Do you any memories from childhood that you can share with us?
Growing up in a troubled neighborhood along with Great Aunt and my two brothers would read more like a tale of two cities rather than an adventure.  I’m very fond of and deeply appreciative of my Great Aunt who raised us kids. One of the memories I cherish to this day, though it may appear very simple to many, were the times my Great Aunt would bring me along to the store with her and would surprise me by graciously buying me a pretzel and an Icee. We would then just sit together, talking, and laughing as the color of our smiles soon turned to match the color of our Icees.  This experience over time taught me that great memories do not necessarily require something predicated on fancy, expensive, abundance, or quantity, but rather the quality of a moment in time where two people shared, a parent child, conversation based in love.
