"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Born in rural Alabama and raised with his four siblings by their single mother, Vince Smith learned early on the value of hard work, teamwork, and perseverance. He graduated at the top of his high school class and led his football team to a state championship victory, all while working a part-time job at a local dairy farm.
Vince's academic prowess and leadership abilities earned him a scholarship to an Ivy League school, where he graduated summa cum laude with a degree in political science before successfully pursuing with a law degree. He spent the next two decades prosecuting the state's gravest offenders, in addition to volunteering for a variety of charitable causes.
Today, Vince wants to serve as your voice on Capitol Hill. A voice that echoes your concerns. A voice that matters. A voice that cares.
"Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer."
