Monday night, Alabama 2nd District U.S. Rep. Martha Roby emailed constituents a newsletter with updates of what she was up to during this last week’s District work period.
From visiting Tallassee High School’s new CTE facility to hanging out with the Girl Scouts to meeting with Dr. Carl Stockton, the new Chancellor of Auburn University at Montgomery — it’s safe to say, Roby was very busy while away from Washington, D.C.

You might have seen on Facebook that I was busy traveling the district last week. It was an eventful, productive week, and I’m so glad I was able to visit with so many of my constituents.
February is Career Technical Education Celebration Month in Alabama, so I used my time in the district last week to stop by a couple of high school CTE facilities and learn more about the work they’re doing.
My first stop of the week was at Tallassee High School’s new CTE facility. I was so impressed! The school is really accomplishing big things for CTE in the area, and I’m proud of their new developments. While I was there, I spoke to a group of seniors about the importance of setting and reaching goals.
Later in the week I visited Geneva High School’s CTE facility and enjoyed a delicious breakfast prepared by some of the students. I really appreciated this invitation and the students’ hard work.
LUNCH WITH THE LIONS CLUB
While in Tallassee, I had lunch with the Tallassee Lions Club. We covered a lot of topics, including my exciting new committee assignments and the opportunities I’ll have moving forward. I appreciate being invited to their meeting, and I hope to visit them again soon.
MEETINGS IN MONTGOMERY
Last week I also spent a lot of time meeting with constituents in my Montgomery office. It was especially great to meet with Girl Scout Troop 9141 – those young girls asked some really thought-provoking questions. I know they’ll grow up to be outstanding leaders in our communities.
Dr. Carl Stockton, the new Chancellor of Auburn University at Montgomery, also came by my office last week. I was very impressed with what he had to say, and I really enjoyed our visit! I’m confident that he will serve AUM admirably in this role.
AN AFTERNOON IN ANDALUSIA
I spent part of an afternoon in Covington County where I spoke to the Andalusia Civitan Club at their weekly meeting. It was great to see some smiling, familiar faces!
THE WEEK AHEAD
As you may know, President Trump will address a Joint Sessions of Congress for the first time tomorrow night at 8:00 Central Time. I’m looking forward to hearing the President’s address, and I think it comes at a good time because the nation needs to see the Commander-in-Chief address Congress and understand that their government is working. I’m looking forward to hearing the President talk about defeating the global terrorist threat, securing our borders, and improving the economy.
This is an exciting occasion. For six years we have sat and listened to lofty lectures from President Obama, and I have a feeling tomorrow night will be much different. I encourage everyone to watch.
