On Wednesday, the Greater Shelby County Governmental Affairs Work Group is hosting a town hall meeting with the Shelby County Legislative Delegation in Pelham.  The town hall meeting provides Shelby County businesses and residents with the opportunity to meet with the County’s State Legislative Delegation prior to the 2014 State Legislative Session which begins in Montgomery next week.

Alabama State Senator Cam Ward (R) from Alabaster said, “We want to encourage all of our citizens to come to this Town Hall Meeting. This is a great opportunity for them to ask us some questions and tell us what they think we need to be focusing on.  We would not be here without your votes and your support, and we intend to be responsive to the issues you think we should prioritize.”

The Town Hall meeting will be from 5:30pm until 7:00pm tonight (Wednesday, January 8).  Members of the delegation will briefly introduce themselves.  That will be followed by a “question & answer” period for the attendees.   The Meeting will be held in the Large Community Services Room at the County Services Building at 1301 County Services Drive, Pelham, AL 35124.

The Shelby County Legislative delegation includes Senator Cam Ward, Sen. Slade Blackwell (R) from Trussville (Jefferson and Shelby), Sen. Jabo T. Waggoner (R) from Vestavia the Senate Majority Leader (Jefferson and Shelby) and state Representatives: Mike Hill (R) (Shelby), Kurt Wallace (R)  (Chilton and Shelby), Mary Sue McClurkin (R) (Jefferson and Shelby), Jim Carns (R) (Jefferson and Shelby), April Weaver (R) (Bibb and Shelby), and Jim McClendon (R) (St. Clair and Shelby).
