The Alabama Republican Party frequently honors Rising Republican Stars from throughout the state. Many of the outstanding conservative leaders they’ve recognized are heavily involved in one of Alabama’s YR clubs. Jodi is ALGOP’s Rising Republican Star for January 1, 2012.

Jeff & Jodi Peacock

Jodi and Jeff are natives of Century, FL and have been sweethearts since high school. Jeff attended Florida State University where he graduated magna cum laude with a degree in finance, while Jodi attended Troy University where she was a member of the Sound of the South Marching Band.

During his tenure, membership has doubled, meeting attendance has quadrupled and most importantly, Escambia County elected its first Republicans to local office ever! In 2011, Jeff was elected ALGOP Vice Chair for Congressional Districts 1 & 2 and has focused his efforts on candidate recruitment and party development in previous Democrat stronghold counties.  Jeff also serves as the Alabama Grassroots Chairman for Mitt Romney.
