Phyllis Harvey-Hall, a public educator and community advocate, is the Democratic nominee for Alabama’s Second Congressional District.
Phyllis Harvey-Hall grew up in Evergreen, Alabama. Neither of her parents (Andrew and Georgia Harvey) finished high school. Nevertheless, her parents and grandparents pushed her to finish high school. She was the first high school graduate in three generations of her family. She attended Alabama State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education.
Harvey-Hall began her career as an educator in Montgomery Public Schools as a young woman eager to change the world through education. Since retiring she continued her career in public service, which included working with the Family Sunshine Center and the National Association of Educational Progress (NAEP).
She owned and ran a tutoring business for two years. All of Phyllis’ work experiences, including serving as a board member of two neighborhood associations, have led her to this new form of public service called an elected official. Harvey-Hall wants to ensure that every day extraordinary people can know that their concerns and hopes matter now and for their posterity.
Phyllis Harvey-Hall lives in Montgomery with her husband, daughter, and granddaughter.
Why I'm Running
Alabama’s Second Congressional District covers the southeast portion of Alabama. Maxwell -Gunter Air Force Base and Fort Rucker are military installations that bring people from every state to this area. We are a diverse people living in rural and urban areas.
Just as the district is not a monolithic area, we are not a monolithic people. We have different lived experiences and different views. Yet, the current representative ran his last campaign on one premise, or should I say one person. He is still operating on half-truths. I am running to defeat Barry Moore and to be a representative who will stand up for the pledge to defend America, not a person.
I will represent all the people of the district. I will bring integrity, truth, and unity back to our state and country. I will break barriers and bread with the people, and I will build the bridges needed to connect our people and our communities. I will move Alabama into the future by collaborating with all officials to bring growth to our area. I will listen to the different voices, and we will move forward together. I am for unity. I am for the people. Join my team!
