About Charles Orr

Hello. I am Colonel Charles A. Orr, United States Air Force retired, and I ask your support for the Alabama State House District 10 Republican Primary Election on June 5. 

I represent three generations of military service; my Grandfather enlisted in World War I, my Father in World War II.  During my 37-year Air Force career, I spent 5 years successfully developing, presenting and defending Major Command multi-year, multi-billion dollar military programs to the Pentagon’s tough Air Staff Corporate process.  I later served in the Pentagon for 5 years as a voting member in that same Air Staff Corporate budget process. 

I was stationed 3 times in Alabama where I met and married my cherished wife Debora, a Tallapoosa County native with Alabama roots back to 1812.  We have 2 grown children and 3 grandchildren, all Alabama public school products, all Alabama citizens.  After the Air Force, Debora and I put our roots down here in the Tennessee Valley where, as a defense contractor, I supported the Missile Defense Agency on the Arsenal for over 10 years. 

I have earned a Master Degree in Business Management at Troy University with emphasis in human resource management.  My undergraduate degree included a minor in economics.  I also have a Master in Strategic Planning and completed a Master of Business Administration (all but thesis) with emphasis in finance.   

Debora and I completed together the 3-year Certificate of Biblical Studies from Legacy Bible College here in Huntsville.  We are members of Whitesburg Baptist Church where I head the ministry Christian Citizen Task Force and sing in the choir.  I am also on the Board of Directors of the Huntsville Tea Party, a past Board Member of Huntsville Right to Life and the former Director of Operations (G-3) at the Montgomery Headquarters of the Alabama State Defense Force.  Finally, I’m a voting member of the Madison County Republican Executive Committee.

Blessed with these academic and practical successes, I want to continue to serve all America’s citizens by becoming the next Alabama representative from District 10, making Alabama even greater, supporting and defending the Constitutions of both Alabama and the United States.  I am Charles Orr and I ask your support in the Primary Election on Tuesday, June 5.
