HALEYVILLE - Issues ranging from education, healthcare, infrastructure and broadband that will come up during this year’s Alabama legislative session will be addressed locally next week during a public meeting hosted by Winston County’s team of state legislators.
Winston County’s state legislative team will be making a special visit to Haleyville High School Thursday, Jan. 19, for a meeting, designed to give the public input into the legislative process, as well as allow them to ask questions and seek input from those representing them. The meet-and-greet portion of the event will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the HHS commons area, where the public meeting will begin at 6 p.m.
State Senator Garlan Gudger will be joined at the meeting by State Representatives Tracy Estes and Tim Wadsworth, with numerous city, county and school officials expected to be in attendance. All residents are cordially encouraged to attend.
So many times, residents have opinions about issues, but do not come to meetings to address those issues with their legislators, officials have said. This event will allow them the chance to do so.
“We value the relationships we have with our state legislators and always appreciate when they take the time to come to our schools and communities and hear from us,” noted HCS Superintendent Dr. Holly Sutherland.
