The county visit — commonly called a town hall meeting — is open to the public and will take place at Smokin’ Jack’s Bar-B-Que in Demopolis.

Sen. Shelby will address the legislative agenda for the second session of the 111th Congress as well as important issues facing the nation and the state of Alabama. Following his remarks, He will open the floor to questions and comments from those in attendance.
