Twinkle Andress Cavanaugh announced Monday that she will seek another full term as President of the Alabama Public Service Commission. Cavanaugh was elected to her current term in 2020, a race in which she received more votes than any other non-presidential candidate in Alabama history.

Cavanaugh’s service on the PSC “has been notable for her refusal to cave to the whims of out-of-state environmental lobbyists who have attempted to influence Alabama’s energy decisions during her tenure,” stated her campaign.

“Sound energy policy is the foundation for all that we want to achieve as a state,” Cavanaugh emphasized.

Cavanaugh, a wife, a mother and a small business owner, is committed to applying the principles of conservative governance as a public servant in Alabama.

“She served as co-chair of the Alliance for a Pro-Life Alabama, a group which successfully supported a state constitutional amendment recognizing the rights of unborn children,” her campaign wrote.

During her time of service on the commission, “Cavanaugh has established a model ethics policy, cut government waste to save taxpayers millions of dollars annually and assured the return of hundreds of millions of dollars to Alabama consumers,” they emphasized.

Even with her status as one of Alabama’s trailblazing women, Cavanaugh’s faith and her family remain the driving forces in her life.

A graduate of Auburn University, she is married to local veterinarian Jeff Cavanaugh, and they have three children and two grandchildren.

Twinkle and her family are active members of First Baptist Church in Montgomery and are involved in numerous community initiatives.
