Alabama Democratic Party Opening New Field Office In Birmingham

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).

You know how we've been dunning you and even begging people to donate to the ADP for over a year now?  Well.... here it is again!

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.

Become a monthly donor to the Alabama Democratic Party and help us invest in the future of Alabama!

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.

Fantastic News (4.00 / 1)
Birmingham is the tip of the spear of Democratic politics, that is now a fact.

What happened in Jefferson County was a feat of organizing. And although there are troubling signs for our party when it comes to returning to power, it looks as though our major metro counties are going to be the base of our party. The sweeping victories in Jefferson County are going to be repeated in Baldwin County, Madison County, Montgomery County.

I halfway expect the next generation of Democrats lucky enough to get elected to offices like U.S. Senator, Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General, State Supreme Court etc will be people who started their careers off as Mayors, State Senators, Circuit Judges, and District Attorneys from these areas.

Exactly! (0.00 / 0)

We have to start re-building a bench of candidates because the state party totally neglected that duty for over a decade.  And the local county committees (many of them, anyway) fell into disrepair and disarray.

Used to be, just winning the Democratic primary was the ticket to victory, so the local county committees were totally unprepared to actually organize locally & help candidates run general election campaigns.

I think you're completely correct that the change in the ADP & new candidates will start in the metropolitan areas.

But it won't end there.  :-)

monthly tithe (4.00 / 1)
we signed up for a monthly deduct to the state dem party after we heard judge kennedy speak shortly after he took office, way off in tanner, limestone county, but worth the drive. and we haven't regretted it. state dem party gets very little credit for what it's been able to do with pennies.
