“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
If you’re like me, your Independence Day was a little muted because of social distancing and the fact that many of our city and community Independence Day events were cancelled.

I hope you and your family are well amidst these uncertain, difficult times for our nation. We continue to face the COVID-19 crisis, but horrific deaths and riots have also shaken many over the last few weeks.
I hope you and your family are well as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 crisis. The conversations have shifted to reopening our country and I am committed to making that happen for Alabama in the safest and most efficient way possible. I want to provide the latest updates on the reopening process, as well as share how I’ve been involved at both the state and national level.
