Gary Palmer’s 15 Votes for McCarthy Was a Betrayal of Conservative Principles
HOOVER, AL, October 07, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Gerrick Wilkins, Republican candidate for Alabama’s 6th Congressional District announced that he would vote to elect Ohio Representative Jim Jordan to be the next Speaker of the House. Wilkins said Jordan was a true conservative who has been unwavering in supporting a strong border, the Second Amendment, a strong military defense, and small government. True reform for America will only begin with unwavering leadership, and Jim Jordan has consistently demonstrated that leadership. Wilkins said that the House should never have been in the position of having a second battle for House Speaker and would not have been had he been the 6th District’s representative. Unlike Gary Palmer, who supported former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy every vote in January, Wilkins would have opposed McCarthy until a true champion of conservative principles was elected earlier this year.
“Jim Jordan is the true steadfast conservative in the race to be the next House Speaker and has my full support,” said Gerrick Wilkins. “Jim Jordan will be the Speaker who will stand up to Joe Biden, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and the wokes in Washington.
“If Gary Palmer were a true conservative, he would not have backed Kevin McCarthy in January to the bitter end, and we would have had a true conservative as Speaker now. Unlike Gary Palmer, I will never sacrifice my principles to get along with the swamp in D.C,” said Wilkins.
“Jim Jordan is that conservative, and I wholeheartedly support him and will proudly cast my first vote to elect him Speaker in January of 2025,” concluded Wilkins.
After witnessing the failed policies of career politicians, the overreach of government regulations, the increased tax burden on small businesses, and the attacks on the family by the left, Gerrick Wilkins decided to take up the banner and run for Congress to represent Alabama as a servant leader. Gerrick is committed to serving a maximum of three terms in office to help restore our founding father’s vision of a citizen legislature.
Gerrick Wilkins took to heart the quote from President Ronald Reagan, “We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.” This quote encouraged Gerrick to get involved in his local church, serving as a deacon and lay leader, engage in mission work locally and globally, and work with Gideons International. Gerrick is a principled man of faith and is a Christian who loves the Lord. His faith and family have encouraged him to pursue a calling to this period of civil service. Over the years, he has committed significant time and personal resources to missions and philanthropic work locally to help his community in Alabama and worldwide. Gerrick also serves on several local advisory boards, including one for Mission Increase and Samford University’s Brock School of Business.
Gerrick knows it is only by the blessings of God that our country has enjoyed bountiful prosperity. Gerrick will work hard to combat the leftist, woke agenda attacking our religious freedoms and trying to break down our family. Because of his success in the business world, Gerrick and his wife, Carol, are privileged to give hundreds of thousands for dollars to churches, various charities, mission organizations, and educational programs through private donations.
Gerrick is a loving husband to his incredible wife of 24 years, Carol, and a devoted father to their amazing daughter, Hanna. Gerrick and his family moved to Alabama in 2006 and have lived in Vestavia Hills since 2014. He attended Pensacola Christian College, where he met his wife and earned a bachelor’s degree in theology from Liberty University. Gerrick has been a strong proponent of lifelong learning, and during his professional career, he returned and earned a master’s in business administration from Samford University.
From a young age, Gerrick has been interested in how our country is governed, working on several local campaigns while in high school. After working a lifetime to build a successful career, Gerrick is disheartened with the direction of our nation. He is writing a book on congressional term limits and the problem of career politicians.
Gerrick is an American business leader with over 24 years of private sector experience in the automotive industry. His experience managing large-scale dealerships and helping other community-based dealers grow has allowed him to earn great success and achieve the American dream. During his time managing dealerships in Alabama, Gerrick has learned firsthand of the constant heartaches small businesses must contend from overregulation and excessive tax policies. Gerrick’s real-world experience allows him to understand business owners’ daily challenges.
Gerrick believes we need citizens to stand up and say, “We don’t want career politicians anymore. We want citizen lawmakers.” It is time for us to end the cycle of corruption that persists from lifelong careers in government. Our country needs a change now.
