The governor’s office office announced Wednesday Gov. Robert Bentley will address the public and members of the media Thursday afternoon in Montgomery regarding developments related to economic development in Tuscaloosa County.
State Auditor Jim Zeigler seemingly had the inside scoop Wednesday afternoon, taking to social media and posting the following:
An announcement is expected Thursday of an automobile parts supplier coming to the Tuscaloosa area bringing 600 jobs to Alabama. It will manufacture doors for Mercedes vehicles made at the Vance, AL plant. Details Thursday.
The announcement will take place on the steps of the Old Capitol Building on Dexter Avenue in the state capital.
Event organizers say the governor – for whom the good news is badly needed after a two legislative Sessions have so far failed to produce a budget – will speak at 11 a.m. and will be joined by local and state leaders.
