Transparency

Birmingham residents have lost trust in William Bell and our City Hall to solve the City’s challenges.  Report after report of fighting with the City Council, a million dollar security detail, nepotism and corruption, state and federal investigations into the Birmingham Water Works and Birmingham Construction, and reports of out-of-control travel expenditures from William Bell have all eroded our trust in City Hall.

Opportunity

Greater Birmingham has experienced zero job growth on William Bell’s watch, and in some of our neighborhoods, nearly half of our residents live in poverty.  We’ve seen nothing remotely close to an anti-poverty agenda from William Bell, and Birmingham can’t wait another four years for a City Hall that is more intentional about creating opportunities for all residents and for the small businesses that are the backbone of our local economy.

Neighborhood Revitalization

Birmingham has a backlog of over 10,000 abandoned properties that have accumulated on Mayor Bell’s watch.  Overgrown lots are literally everywhere – far too many to count.  Addressing these aren’t election year priorities; they’re everyday priorities and not just when your name is on the ballot.

Education

William Bell has made every attempt to distort my record as President of the Birmingham Board of Education.  I opposed charter schools, I worked with my colleagues to get Birmingham City Schools removed from state probation, and I helped lead efforts to approve 3-mill property tax and $8 million in additional revenue to fund arts, music and pre-K in our schools.

With Woodfin: Inspiration by Jennifer Egbe

Randall Woodfin and I first crossed paths in July 2004 when I moved to Birmingham.  Randall immediately struck me as genuine, dependable and honest.  He was my resource for everything from driving directions to recommendations on soul food restaurants. I initially felt certain that I would return to North Carolina after law school, but Randall made me fall in love with Birmingham, and found a way to make it mine.

Public Safety

Birmingham has had 546 homicides on William Bell’s watch.  That’s 546 families, including my own, that have lost a loved one to our streets.  But if you visit William Bell’s website, you won’t see a comprehensive public safety plan because he doesn’t have one.   He thinks saying “experience” over and over again will work, but “experience” gave us 546 homicides – and we deserve better.

With Woodfin: Re-Entry by Stephanie Hicks

I met Randall early in his campaign for mayor about August 2016 when he was distributing campaign flyers with his mother at his side at Railroad Park. At that time people did not believe he would have a chance in becoming mayor. However, something about his genuine passion for an inclusive Birmingham was intriguing.

State Representative John Rogers

As a resident of the city of Birmingham, I’ve paid close attention to the race for Mayor between the incumbent, William Bell, and the challenger, Randall Woodfin. As a six-term member of the Alabama House of Representatives, I feel an obligation to speak up about the October 3 runoff, and to tell you that the best candidate for the future of our city — the candidate who cares the most about Birmingham and all of its people — is Randall Woodfin.
