Colston was chosen for the honor as a nod to his professional and civic contributions not only to the local community, but the state of Alabama as a whole.

“David has truly been a powerful force and a relentless fighter as a freshmen legislator, and he goes over and beyond the call of duty when it comes to working for the people of his district, ” House Minority Leader Craig Ford, D-Gadsden, said. He added that Colston is an asset to the Democratic Caucus and the Legislature.
