About Alex Walker
I am a life long resident of Illinois. I grew up in Southern Illinois in West Frankfort. At the age of 2 years old I was adopted. My father was a coal miner and my mother was a stay at home mom. My parents had 6 kids of their own and then adopted 8 more.
I graduated from West Frankfort High School in 2005. I later attended Lincoln Trail College in Robinson, Illinois. In 2012, I moved to Mattoon, Illinois where I currently live...with my husband, Taylor who I married in 2016.
I am an openly gay Conservative Republican.
I have been involved in politics nearly as long as I can remember. I currently serve as Marketing officer for the Log Cabin Republicans of Illinois.
