Statement from Alabama Democratic Party Chairman Mark Kennedy
on Deadly Alabama Storms
“Our thoughts are with the Alabamians whose lives and communities felt the devastating impact of the deadly weather that ravaged much of Alabama yesterday. More than a hundred men and women from across the state lost their lives yesterday, and we must all do what we can to reach out to our friends and neighbors to help begin the recovery.
“The outpouring of support and resources into West and North Alabama from cities and counties across the state is an incredible and moving demonstration of the close bonds we all share as Alabama citizens. We appreciate the rapid response from both President Obama and Governor Bentley, and we encourage the Governor and the Legislature to take all possible steps to allow the towns and families impacted by this tragedy to begin rebuilding as swiftly as possible.”
