MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Gov. Bob Riley and officials from the Tuscaloosa County area are in Germany trying to recruit more auto
supply companies to the state.

Riley's press secretary, Todd Stacy, said Tuesday the visit stems from Mercedes' decision to base production of its C-Class sedan at its plant in Tuscaloosa County. The Alabama delegation is meeting with about a dozen suppliers in Stuttgart in hopes they will want to open plants in Alabama that will make parts for the C-Class.

Stacy says the governor left Monday and will return Thursday.

    I really think Riley is going to Germany to see if he can talk them into bringing Indian Casino's into the country. Riley is a bum, crook and liar. So is his bully boyfriend Tyson.

    leave it to gov. goofy.....waste taxpayers $$ all the way to the end. yes, i know it is vital to the alabama economy to bring in industry for jobs! i get it! but isn't this what gov. goofy stated when he and his boyzzz made the trip to southern california? and was spotted eating lobster and attending the national championship game...all at the expense of the alabama tax payer.

    Riley and his co-horts can spend our tax dollars for a german vacation under false pretense but denys the people of this state the right to work and support their families by his prejudicial actions against Bingo parlors. Maybe they will stop his tax spending vacatins and deny him anything for his tenure as governor ..but that won't happen.
