“Oh I say the measure of a man
Is not how tall you stand.”
4 Him, The Measure of a Man, 1995
Alabama has exciting days ahead of it. Our next US Senator will likely be decided August 15, 2017. Almost every other statewide elected official and every member of the Legislature will be up for election on November 6, 2018.
Over the coming weeks and months, we will be inundated with announcements of men and women running for office, with their accompanying propaganda. Alabama’s legendary Chief Justice Roy Moore is slated to announce whether he will pursue US Senate or Governor on Wednesday, April 26, at 1:30 on the Capitol Steps in Montgomery.
