Jackson County, AL (September 26, 2022) – Jackson County representatives will be traveling this week to Washington, D.C. to meet with lawmakers to discuss critical needs of our business community. Twenty-six local elected officials, business leaders and community partners will depart on Tuesday and spend two days in scheduled meetings with legislators.
These briefings will take place with Senator Richard Shelby, Senator Tommy Tuberville, Congressman Mo Brooks and Congressman Robert Aderholt. A committee led by the Chamber formed the 2022/2023 Federal Agenda which will be presented and discussed during the visit.
“The Chamber has conducted the annual Washington, D.C. Fly-In for thirty years and has seen great dividends. Our visits have resulted in $2M for the Scottsboro Airport, $200,000 for My Lake Guntersville, millions in grants for the Scottsboro WSG and Section/Dutton Water Board. We have been able to build great relationships with our congressional delegation and this is important for all of Jackson County,” said Rick Roden, President/CEO Mountain Lakes Chamber.
