Republican Women of Trussville
'One Nation Under God'
RWOT members, Debbie Rangel, Paige Lucas, Judy Hamrick, Terri LaPoint, and Patsy Vines attended Alabama Federation of Republican Women Legislative Days on January 31 and February 1, 2018. It was an opportunity to hear candidates running for all statewide offices in a forum and answer questions about where they stand on key issues. Governor Kay Ivey spoke at the dinner. Danny Garrett and Carol joined us for dinner that night. Our own Terri LaPoint spoke and, of course, member, Vicki Bailey, did a jam-up job of coordinating Legislative Days as President of AFRW.
On February 1, attendees of Legislative Days had our pictures made in front of the capitol. Then we went the State House where we visited our representatives and senators and had an opportunity to see our government at work! This was a chance to talk to our legislators about proposed legislation, etc. When they looked up to the gallery they saw a sea of red!!!! Then we had lunch in the Alabama Supreme Court sponsored by Chief Justice Lyn Stuart, Justice Kelli Wise, Judge Mary Windom, Judge Beth Kellum and Judge Teri Thomas. Capping off an acton-packed day we had dessert at the Governor's Mansion, the designated State cake - Lane. It was delicious. So much fun!!!
If you were unable to attend this year, please consider going next year. You will see that it is a terrific experience.
