Cullman, Ala. – On Tuesday, Republican Wilson Blaylock announced he will be seeking re-election as District Attorney for Cullman County.

“I am proud of (the) work we have done in the District Attorney’s Office,” Blaylock said.  “As the chief law enforcement officer for Cullman County, we work hard every day to enforce the laws of the State of Alabama to ensure the families of Cullman are safe and the quality of life in Cullman County remains second to none.  There is still work to be done and I look forward every day to serving the citizens of Cullman County.”

Blaylock was first elected to the District Attorney’s Office in 2004.  Prior to election, he was a graduate of the University of Alabama and the Birmingham School of Law, and served as Deputy District Attorney in Cullman from 2000-2005. 

Blaylock and his wife, the former Missy Wilson, have five children and three grandchildren.  The Blaylock’s are members of First United Methodist Church in Cullman.

A life-long Republican, Blaylock is an avid Alabama football fan.  He is a member of the Cullman County Cattleman’s Association, sits on the Board of the Cullman County Community Corrections Board, is on the Board of Directors of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders and Exhibitors Association and is one of the founding sponsors of the Cullman County Human Trafficking Task Force.

“Cullman County needs a District Attorney with a strong legal background,” Blaylock added.  “Someone who has a track record as a prosecutor and is also a strong conservative.  I will always stand up to protect our seniors. I am proud to stand with our law enforcement community and I will protect our hard-working families.  And I will continue to represent the District Attorney’s Office with honesty and integrity.”

The Republican Primary will be held on May 24, 2022.
