Re: State Senator Roger Bedford

This was my email to Roger Bedford, "You told the Alabama Political Reporter and I quote, "The Republican Supermajority chose to play to the fears as well as the racism of a small section of Alabama voters which make up, sadly, a huge voting block of the Republican primary." Do you have any proof of any racism? Since when was obeying the law racist? And how is Alabama's law any different than the federal law which president Obama refuses to enforce? Your comments were out of line and calling...

Roger Bedford should have been voted out long ago but the people of Franklin county think the Bedford's put the moon in the sky.

What he said was very irresponsible and crosses the line. I hope other people catch on to it this should be a huge story.

Semi is right. Franklin county loves the man and keeps voting him back into office. I say enough is enough. Let's get somebody else in there.

Assuming the new districts hold up I would actually have to look to see if we in Tuscumbia would have Bedford. I saw someone on Facebook a few weeks ago say that downtown Florence said they didn't want him because they were jealous of all he had done for his district. That didn't make sense to me and neither does Bedford.

And to think Roger Bedford has been the Senate Finance Committee chairman every other year--with great influence over State budgets? Talk about putting the fox in a hen house. Everyone that re-elects this guy needs to be ashamed of themselves. Needless to say, Alabama's finances are in shambles. And, the State Senate is the most exclusive boy's club in the State--full of high egos and worthless individuals.

I heard a fellow one time who said, "he may be a crook, but he's our crook"....and as long as he continues to bring pork back into Franklin county and serve it up to his constituents they will continue to put him back in office. It is a shame.

Don't just tell people on this forum about how you feel. We all need to tell our neighbors and co-workers how we feel about this and vote people like Bedford out. It just seems to me that most of the people who have simular mind sets in this country are all democrats. I have been a yellow dog democrat most of my life but not anymore. The democratic party has abondoned it's base for left leaning lebrals and their beliefs. Vote Obama out!

This is what Bedford told the Alabama Political Reporter in its entirety and I quote, “The ruling shows that once again the Republican Supermajority has wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers money. They have unnecessarily threatened and endangered Alabama’s economy and our image." He went on to say, “Real leadership would have waited a few months, seen what the U.S. Supreme Court said is constitutional and what’s not and then we could have come with a rational plan,” said...

BREAKING NEWS! I actually got a response to my email from Mr. Bedford. This is what he just sent me less than 5 minutes ago and I quote, "Sadly the President and both US Senate and US House of Rep. have ignored and refused to solve the very serious problem of immigration in America. Is part of the GOP Img. Policy playing to the sad issue of racism , yes. The truth sometimes hurts but must be recognized to grow beyond it. No one is for illegal immigration including me and you ." He sent that...

This was my response back to him, " Because the Federal government refuses to address the issue of immigration State governments had to. Then the Supreme Court ruled yesterday that it's Federal issue only, State governments cannot pass their own laws and I respect their decision but for you to say that the Republicans in Alabama passed immigration reform just to please the racist members of their electorate is baseless." Still waiting for a reply.

This is what Alabama state Senator Roger Bedford said concerning the Supreme Court's decision on Arizona's illegal immigration law and its effects on Alabama's law, "The ruling shows that once again the Republican Supermajority has wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers money.

Bronner, conference center, gas tax

1130 ·
paper says Bronner wants the two million in fund for park. Paper also says some of the tax went to construction of hotel? It has been 12 years and only 2 million in tax? Bronner got the conference center for $1 a year, he can pay for work on it. There should be an audit on the tax money and how it has been handled. Some how I think we have been misled. Remember Bronner works for the rich State employee retirement fund. He doesn't care about the people. I remember him wanting the senate to...

I would hope that any and all large projects funded by Tax increases would have a separate and independent audit from an independent group. If such is done then it should be available or made available to the public. If there is not that process in place then I agree it should be in place to insure that what was funded was spent as it should have been.

Let's give Bronner his $2 million, but only if he retires and goes to the house. He made some real bone headed investments with the RTC golf courses that are not being utilized, the Wise capital loan and worst of all--the Barton rail car complex. So far, he's gotten out by the skin of his teeth, but the Barton complex is far from paying off. The truth is that the man was given too much authority to make investments without oversight. And he did a bunch of dumb stuff. It's time for him to...

Politics is similar to college Football (and in many ways some Private Industry Companies) where when you fail you get to leave with a Golden Parachute. I think every industry and group has those people that are paid far beyond their capabilities or abilities. In the company that I worked for, for so many years ,things were great until they put certain people in high decision making positions where they could personally profit from bad decisions. The real unfortunate thing was that the bad...

The city really doesn't have a choice. The money was placed in reserve for an attraction to be built, and it hasn't been. Of course, the city could sue the RSA, but there's really no grounds and it would just make Florence look worse, plus antagonizing Bronner.

I know. I just wanted to get my message across that Bronner really screwed up on the golf courses--big, big losing propositions. He got out of Wise by the skin of his teeth, and the Barton complex is not yet out of the woods. Navistar bet the company on a non DEF heavy truck engine that failed, and the first blip in the truck business and they're out of business.

sorry to hear the golf courses are losing. although the conf. center used to do much for the local area before all this. the whole thing has been good for the area. I just hate the elected misleading, for 10 plus years there has been a tax for a purpose. Has the money been used for other purposes? It shouldn't be used to bail out Bronner. How much do they make on the hotel? use that money for the conf. center upgrade.

in the paper today, the park authority is giving two mil to Bronner. was two mil all that was collected in 10-12 years? I find that hard to believe. Something isn't right.
