As part of our ongoing efforts to bring real news and honest opinions about Alabama politics, the Alabama Political Reporter is launching a one-of-a-kind survey to gain expert insight into the most critical issues facing our state.
Over the last several months, APR has recruited over 70 individuals from all walks of Alabama politics to join a survey we call The Influentials Poll.
As the situation warrants, APR will conduct anonymous surveys to take the pulse of the state of our state.
From venerable lions of state politics to the inspiring Young Turks, APR’s panel of Influentials will weigh in on subjects such as infrastructure, budgeting, education and workforce development, just to name a few of the topics to be surveyed.
The identity of those who answer the polls will not be known, even to the staff at APR. However, each participant’s general field of work will be published with each survey.
A solid list of lawmakers from both parties, as well as members of the media and political analysts make up part of the Influentials. There are also other government officials and lobbyists included in this highly experienced and unique group.
APR’s goal, as always, is to offer a thoughtful examination of the issues, diverse commentary and irrefutable facts.
Our league of Influentials will provide the state’s politico and citizens with an unfiltered look into the most pressing questions before our state while offering insight on how to make Alabama even better.
