Candidate, U.S. House Alabama District 5
Kathy Warner-Stanton is the Democratic Nominee for the U.S. House of Representatives in Alabama’s 5th District (all of Jackson County, Madison County, Limestone County, Morgan County and half of Lauderdale County).
A native Alabamian with deep roots in North Alabama, Kathy graduated high school from East Limestone High School (Limestone County), received a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Alabama A&M University (Madison County), and received a Masters in Management from Troy State University. Currently, Kathy resides in Decatur, AL (Morgan County). Before relocating back to Alabama, she spent several years stationed at various bases across the country and abroad as a military spouse and mother.
Kathy began her career as a Computer Specialist with the federal government—a role she served in for over ten years—before pursuing employment opportunities within corporate America. During her time working in the private sector, she was able to rise through the ranks to Programming Project Manager with a multi-million dollar credit card processing company while simultaneously earning her Masters in Management from Troy State University and raising her young children as a single mother. Later, she ventured to work with a major health care insurance company.
Whether it was being bused into a desegregated school system, becoming a first-generation college graduate, quickly climbing the corporate ladder in a male-dominated field, or earning her Masters as a working single mother, Kathy has never and will never back down from a challenge.
And that is why Kathy is running to represent Alabama 5th Congressional District. Kathy believes all citizens deserve a true voice in Washington as well as a representative who has their best interest at heart. She has spent her whole life working hard and serving others, and she intends to continue that fighting spirit all the way to the halls of Congress, advocating for positive change in the lives of those in her district and across the state of Alabama.
