On Monday, February 9, US Senator Richard Shelby (R-Alabama) announced that he will kick-off his annual statewide tour of each of Alabama’s sixty-seven counties this week.

Sen. Shelby wrote, “Throughout my time in the United States Senate, I have made it a top priority to visit all 67 counties in Alabama every year.”

Sen. Shelby continued, “The focus of my statewide travel will be to hear from my constituents about the impact of the Obama Administration’s policies on middle class families, job creation, and economic growth. I believe these visits are an excellent opportunity for us to discuss the important issues currently facing our state and nation.”

Since first joining the Senate in 1987, Senator Richard Shelby has held more than 1,800 county visits in Alabama.

On Saturday, February 14, at 7:00 am, Sen. Shelby will be in St. Clair County in Pell City for a breakfast at Celebrations at 3005 Martin St S in Pell City, Alabama. Sen. Shelby is a guest of the Pell City Chamber of Commerce. The cost to attend is $10 and includes breakfast. You must RSVP to attend.
