Additionally, we value federal, state, and local partnerships, and we appreciate your support of infrastructure improvement and economic development efforts across Central and Southeast Alabama.

Most importantly, we know that you and your team are available to hear our concerns and eager to help your constituents. We recognize that working in the halls of Congress is not easy, but we are proud of your positive representation of our area, your responsible leadership, and your continued fight for traditional Alabama values.

We offer our full endorsement of your campaign and we wish you the best.
