Vance spoke at the AFL-CIO Candidate Forum in Montgomery, Ala. on Thursday, August 2 about the issues facing the Alabama court system and the need for better funding to address these challenges. He also stressed the need for the courts to serve all Alabamians, regardless of income, race, or religion, and he pledged to stand above political rancor and divisiveness.

Vance said he is honored to receive Alabama AFL-CIO’s endorsement.

“The advocacy the organization provides on behalf of working families across our state is of the utmost importance,” Vance said.
