    Larry Langford paying the young girl $10,000 is ridiculous. Nothing against the young girl who may very well have great ideas, but this is yet another classic example of Langford being a free spender of tax money to advance his personal love affair with his own ego. At the rate the City of Birmingham and the Jefferson County Commission are going we all will be working longer each year in order to pay for their lack of financial restraint.

    Again, the silence from the state party continues to amaze me. If this was Paul Hubbert involving himself in local Republican politics, Mike Hubbard would be screaming at the top of his lungs about “union boss” Paul Hubbert. Why is there no response from the state party on this blatant misuse of power by Betty Collins. Again, if AEA was involved, there would be press releases and mass communications all over the state condemning AEA but so far, not one peep out of the Republican Party leadership condemning Mrs Collins. What a bunch of hypocrisy… Step up to the plate Hubbard and Executive Committee. Where’s your courage or convictions now??? It’s easy to use the same old tired message against the evils of AEA and the “special interests groups” but where are your convictions now?? You know what she is doing is wrong and a slap in the face to every Republican in Jefferson county (actually the whole state) but you are turning your backs on the very issue and principles that you say you stand for.. Hypocrites !! Every one of you……

This Thursday will mark the last day of the legislative Session.  For some, it was a Session that seemed would never end.  For others, it was one that ended much too quickly.  It may be early, yet, to write an obit on this Session, but as we approach the finish line, some perspective may be in order.


Putting Students First

As you know, a very important piece of legislation will be presented for our consideration in the House tomorrow in Montgomery – Senate Bill 310 – the “Students First” tenure and fair dismissal reform bill. Like me, many House members have been inundated with phone calls and emails from opponents of this bill, and some have been [...]

Legislative Transparency

There are a lot of issues to debate before we begin the final days of this session. In fact, I am quite certain there will be some comments on this post debating many of them. Before we get into the last seven day of the session I wanted to bring up a topic that [...]
