Senator Gerald Allen is serving his first term in the Senate, after serving four terms in the Alabama House of Representatives.
He received a B.S. Degree in Education from the University of Alabama and is the owner of CASHCO Marketing. Senator Allen and his wife Sheila are the parents of three grown children: Wes, Kellie, and Jill, and have four grandchildren.
In addition to serving as a Deacon for Gilgal Baptist Church, he is involved in various community and civic activities.
During his almost two decades of service to his district, he has sponsored and passed numerous bills of local and statewide importance. Among the major pieces of legislation he has sponsored and passed:
* Fulfilling the state's commitment to the Mercedes Benz project, which opened the door to other automotive manufacturers locating in the state.
