The grassroots organization Hometown Action announced Wednesday they have endorsed Tabitha Isner in the 2nd Congressional District.
Hometown Action wrote in a statement, “Whether you’re a lifelong resident or new arrival, Alabama’s small communities should offer a place to put down deep roots. Unfortunately, too many of Alabama’s rural communities are increasingly dominated by corporate interests that result in local shops going out of business, unavailability of healthcare options, unstable poverty-wage jobs, assaults on our natural resources, and unsafe environments for disenfranchised people of color and marginalized LQBTQ+ citizens.”
“There is so much at stake for Alabama in these midterm elections.” said Hometown Action Executive Director Justin Vest. “We are looking for bold, progressive candidates who will stand up for Alabama’s working families, and our members in District 2 enthusiastically endorse Tabitha Isner for Congress.”
Based on conversations with community members and the Tabitha Isner campaign, Hometown Action members support Isner’s bid to represent District 2 in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“Empowering local communities around the issues which matter to them is critical to re-establishing a functional democracy in the region,” said Isner in her response to Hometown Action’s endorsement questionnaire. “I sought Hometown Action’s endorsement because I am a believer in the organization’s mission and vision, and believe that a partnership between our organizations would serve the people of Alabama’s Second Congressional District.”
Hometown Action members have pledged to do their part to elect Tabitha Isner in the Second Congressional District. She is challenging incumbent Congresswoman Martha Roby (R-Montgomery) in the November 6 general election.
Hometown Action says that they are a statewide collective of Alabamians fighting to build inclusive and sustainable communities where all citizens can thrive. Through member input and shared commitment to build community and political leadership, the member-led organization develops campaigns and policy agendas for place-based, people-centered solutions.
