Luther Strange talks immigration, oil spill at town hall breakfast

Staff Report

SYLACAUGA — Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange attended a town hall breakfast Thursday morning at Coosa Valley Medical Center.

At the breakfast, hosted by state Sen. Jerry Fielding, Strange discussed his role in the cases of most concern to Alabama citizens.

Strange, who took office in November 2010, said it has been a tremendous year of issues.
