Alabama manufacturers meet with U.S. Rep. Martha Roby (AL-02) to discuss energy, workforce development and regulatory issues during Manufacture Alabama’s annual Washington, D.C. fly-In event.

Manufacture Alabama — the state’s only trade association dedicated to the competitive, legislative, regulatory and operational interests and needs of manufacturers and their partner industries and businesses — has endorsed U.S. Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) in her re-election campaign in Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District.

The group cited the Congresswoman’s experience and reputation for the association’s endorsement over challenger, Wetumpka Tea Party founder Becky Gerritson.

“Congresswoman Roby is a proven and solid leader for our state,” said Manufacture Alabama’s President, George Clark. “She has an established pro-manufacturing record and has continuously supported the energy, workforce development and regulatory issues critical to the livelihood of manufacturing.”

“Congresswoman Roby is passionate about public service and is committed to serving the people of Alabama’s Second Congressional District,” Clark concluded.

The primary election is set for March 1.
