Turnout needed at Byrne event

This Monday, gubernatorial candidate Bradley Byrne will stop briefly in Demopolis.

Public attendance is critical. The Black Belt, historically, isn’t known for its participation. However, we’ve begun to change that concept with census returns in 2010, which are well ahead of 2000.

You may not care for Mr. Byrne or his philosophies. You may not care for Republicans in general. But you owe it to yourself and your friends and neighbors to be an educated voter. This is a good opportunity to hear what Mr. Byrne has to say as he continues his quest to become our state’s leader.

Agree with his policies or not, he may or may not be the man calling the shots in Montgomery around the 2010 holiday season.

We hope the citizens of Demopolis will take this opportunity to meet with Mr. Byrne and hear what he has to say to the voters.
