Commissioner Aderholt was elected to the Walker County Commission in 2012 to represent the citizens of District 4, which include: Argo, Boldo, Copeland Ferry, Dora, Empire, Pineywoods, Quinton, Sipsey, and Sumiton.

His philosophy on county government is simple... "Government should manage money the same as businesses and households. You can't spend more than you make. I work everyday to manage the money for our county and District 4 in such a way that benefits the most amount of people, regardless of what part of the county or my district you are from."
