On Wednesday, Congressman Robert Aderholt (R-AL04) announced hiring J.J. McGrady as his new field representative for the Jasper District Office.

“I’m excited to have J.J. onboard, and I know he’s ready to hit the ground running,” said Congressman Aderholt. “J.J. will be working the western portion of the district that was previously covered by Paul Housel. And while I know people really loved working with Paul, I know they will enjoy getting to know J.J. and working with him as well. He has already been out meeting with constituents and elected officials.”

McGrady previously worked for the Alabama Trucking Association, where he served as Manager of Special Projects. McGrady is a 2021 graduate of The University of Alabama, where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Communications, double majoring in public relations and political science.

While a student at Alabama, J.J. interned for the West Alabama Chamber of Commerce, the Business Council of Alabama (BCA), and the Alabama Senate, working for Senate Pro Tempore Greg Reed (R-Jasper). J.J. is pursuing his Master of Public Administration from Troy University.

“I am thrilled to be joining Congressman Aderholt’s staff,” said McGrady. “To be able to help and serve the state that I have always called home is extremely special to me.”

McGrady will be responsible primarily for covering the western portion of the Fourth District. This includes a large portion of Tuscaloosa County, which McGrady is especially excited about as both he and his wife Amanda are huge University of Alabama fans.

Robert Aderholt was first elected to represent Alabama’s Fourth Congressional District in 1996. He is serving in his fourteenth term and is running again in 2024. Aderholt is an attorney and previously served as Chief Counsel for Alabama Governor Fob James (R)
