Today, October 18, U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell, AL-07, will continue her “Congress in Your Community” tour with stops in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
At 11 a.m., Rep. Sewell will host a town hall at the McDonald Hughes Center in Tuscaloosa. Constituents are welcome and encouraged to attend. Media are invited to join Sewell for a press availability at 10:45 a.m., 15 minutes prior to the start of the event. Each year, Sewell hosts a series of town hall meetings in each of the 14 counties that make up her district to give constituents an opportunity to share their views and concerns and hear updates on the latest in Congress.
At 2:00 p.m., Rep. Sewell will be joined by University of Alabama President Dr. Stuart R. Bell and university officials at the Rose Administration Building to announce major funding from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to upgrade the University’s Crimson Ride transit system.
At 3:00 p.m., Rep. Sewell will be joined by Stillman College President Dr. Cynthia Warrick and College Board Chair Donald Comer to announce major funding from the National Park Service (NPS) which she helped secure to transform Sheppard Library into a civil rights museum. This investment is part of the $2.5 million that Rep. Sewell helped secure from the NPS Historic Preservation Fund to preserve historic structures on the campuses of Alabama’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). She will also announce funding to generate new biomedical research efforts at Stillman College which is part of the over $8 million that she secured in the Fiscal Year 2022 government funding package for local community projects in Alabama’s 7th Congressional District.
