U.S. Senate candidate visits Russellville to meet with local voters

Katie Britt, Alabama candidate for the United States Senate, attended a Franklin County Meet and Greet hosted by Brad M. Bolton, president of Community Spirit Bank and a member of the Red Bay City Council, at the Best Western Plus in Russellville Jan. 10.

Bolton said he is appreciative of the opportunity to have Britt in Russellville to hear the concerns faced by people in this area. “It’s always a pleasure having a U.S. Senate candidate who sees the value Franklin County plays in the state’s economy,” Bolton said.

“We were excited to visit Franklin County and discuss our Alabama First campaign to protect our Christian conservative values and preserve the American Dream for our children and our children’s children,” said Britt. “It was great to see so many people turn out to our meet and greet in Russellville and discuss the opportunities and challenges facing their community.”

Community Spirit Bank Vice President Emily Mays said she was thrilled for the opportunity to have Britt in Franklin County. “This was my first chance to meet Katie in person and hear her share conservative, Christian message,” Mays said. “She is truly a fighter for American values, and she has a passion for our state.”

Britt said she is proud to have visited all 67 Alabama counties while on the campaign trail.

“Our grassroots campaign is clearly paying off, as the growing momentum on the ground shows,” Britt asserted. “As our next U.S. senator, I will fight tirelessly to ensure Alabama always has the best possible seat at the table. We need fresh blood to save the country we know and love from do-nothing career politicians in D.C. who only serve their special interest friends.”

“It is wonderful when the Senate candidates see the importance of rural Alabama,” said Rep. Jamie Kiel. “It is always a good sign when we can be on their radar. The relationships we build now will hopefully pay off in the future.”
