Tim James names Chuck Carver as Statewide Field Director

Republican gubernatorial candidate Tim James announced Tuesday Chuck Carver as his statewide field director with responsibility for organizing and implementing grassroots operations.

Carver held a similar position with Todd Strange during his successful campaign for mayor of Montgomery. Carver also will be responsible for the recruitment of volunteers and the implementation of the campaign’s field operation. For the James campaign, he will coordinate the grassroots activities of the campaign’s eight regional directors and their county chairs, coordinators and municipal chairs.

“Chuck’s organizational skills, disciplined approach to problem-solving and leadership skills make him an important member of our team,” James said in a statement.

Carver said that James has already assembled a strong team of supporters throughout the state.

"In the next 11 months of the primary phase of the campaign, we will have built a formidable force on the ground,” Carver said in a statement.

Following an Air Force career as a senior officer, Carver spent several years at Kennedy Space Center working logistics on the payload side of the Space Shuttle. He then moved to a career as an executive in industry, including automotive, aviation and heat exchanger manufacturers. He since has consulted for numerous national and international industrial companies. Carver has been a member of the Montgomery Chamber of Commerce, Committee of 100, Rotary Club, School to Career Work Force Development, Council Chair of the Tukahatchee Area Council for Boy Scouts of America, and an elder for the Young Meadows Presbyterian (PCA) Church. He is a recipient of the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award.

Carver is married to the former Elisabeth Rosier of London, England, and has three sons: Major Charles Carver USAF, Michael Carver of CRH Group of Clanton, and Christopher Carver of Whitney Bank, all living in the Montgomery area.

I hope Tim wins the Republican nomination- he's the best shot being the only Republican w/private sector experience. This sounds like a good step.

James scores again with this addition to his political line up; Chuck Carver is a brilliant, hardworking and honorable man.

I respect the other folks running for Governor, but in the midst of this Obama-driven economic meltdown a man with the business experience and savvy possessed by Mr. James would surely be the wisest pick for Alabama’s future. The other Republican candidates are all professional Goat Hill insiders, whereas James has succeeded in the private sector. In light of how corrupt and incompetent our legislature and government bureaucracy have become recently I just don’t feel comfortable voting for the same people responsible for things like bankrupting PACT.

James would to run our state like a business, and all Alabamians would prosper.

I agree with the comment above. From the looks of it, Tim James has made quite a catch with this Chuck Carver fellow, and he seems to be surrounding himself with all the right people. It would be in Alabama’s best interest to elect this businessman as governor and not some career politician. It is time for a set of business solutions for the problems that plague our state, not just more of the same career politician talking points and broken promises. We have given the politicians years to fix our problems, and they are usually a disappointment. We should elect this successful businessman to come in and fix the problems career politicians always seem to create.
