Untangling the Mess in Montgomery
When I was first elected to the Jefferson County Commission in 2010, the county was in a mess, just like Alabama’s state government is today. So, I rolled up my sleeves, set audacious, seemingly unachievable goals, and then worked tireless with others to achieve them – just like I’ll do as your next governor. Sir Winston Churchill is quoted as saying, “When the eagles are silent, the parrots begin to jabber”. It’s past time for the eagles in every Alabama county, city and town to drown out the voices of the parrots who jabber, “We’re doing the best we can with what we have”. That’s balderdash! We can do better – and we must do better for our children and grandchildren – but it’s going to require a new brand of leadership in the governor’s office, one who has a proven track record of cleaning up messes created by others.
