Alabama Democrats have reason to celebrate! The ADP is planning a grand opening at its new Birmingham Field Office tomorrow, Jan. 17th at 4:30 pm. Join the party for a ribbon cutting at the headquarters (2024 4th Ave. North). A reception follows at the Harbert Center (2019 4th Ave. North).
Some people have been reluctant to donate because of dissatisfaction with how the party operated in the past. They doubted whether Judge Mark Kennedy could actually change anything – if indeed he really wanted to.
It's always a bit of a circular argument: people want to see results before they donate to an organization, but it's hard to get results without money. So hats off to those donors who did have faith in Kennedy and his staff.
Those of you still hanging back and wanting to see some real change can see – and visit it – in Birmingham.
FYI, Madison County Democrats recently decided to keep their headquarters building open year-round. It's a busy place, with party meetings, committee meetings, and lots of organizing.
Things are changing for the better in the ADP. Our new state leadership was the catalyst and it's great to see people and county parties stepping up as well.
