Now that he’s retired from the building business, Pritchett feels that he has plenty of time to devote to the citizens of the Jacksonville and Piedmont areas he will be working for.
“I’ve never stopped having the interest of Calhoun County at heart,” said Pritchett. “I worked hard for the county’s residents when I was commissioner back in the ’90s, and I’ll work hard this time. In fact, I’ll have even more time to devote now, because I’m not working. I’m a lifelong resident of this county, my family lives here and that gives me an extra incentive to be a good commissioner.”
Pritchett is the son of the late Doug Pritchett and Tracey Angel Pritchett of the Angel community.
He was born and reared in the Angel community where he lives with his wife, the former Rhonda Webb of Jacksonville, on a farm and raises a small herd of cattle. Rhonda is a former loan officer at Regions Bank and now works in customer service at Dillard’s in Oxford.
Pritchett has two sons. P. D. and his wife, Shelly, have two children, Tucker and Cash. P. D. is the owner of P. D. Construction Company. Coley and his wife Amber also have two children, Bailee and Carter. Coley is the owner of Triple C Chevron on Alabama 204.
His stepchildren are Bret Henderson and Kori Henderson.
Pritchett started his own business, Pritchett Construction, 37 years ago. Now that he’s retired, it’s run by his sons.
He is a member of Bonny Brook Baptist Church and is a past member of the Army National Guard, Jacksonville unit. He is also a past member of the Calhoun County Homebuilders Association.
“I give my word that I will represent the people of my county with honesty and integrity,” said Pritchett. “That’s what I did before and I’ll do it again. I feel like I’m the best candidate to represent the constituency of District 5.”
Pritchett stressed that he will make himself available to all of the county’s residents.
