Statement on the APCSC overturning the Birmingham board of education's denial of STAR Academy Charter School's application

When Washington instructs Alabama to do something, many across the state would refer to that act as government overreach. I believe it is also an overreach when Alabama tells Birmingham what to do, especially after the local community has spoken.

Investing in Birmingham’s Transportation Infrastructure

Birmingham needs a balanced transportation system that not only moves cars but that also provides viable transit options for Birmingham residents and encourages walkability and bikeability.  Projects like the Intermodal Facility are welcomed additions to downtown, but they are not substitutes for a comprehensive transportation plan that would invest in the City’s transportation system and repair our aging infrastructure.

Revitalizing Our Neighborhoods

Birmingham needs a Mayor for every neighborhood – not just Downtown.  While Downtown has thrived, the last few years for Birmingham’s other 98 neighborhoods have been characterized by blight, overgrown lots, abandoned properties, and crime.  Spot development projects and election-year neighborhood clean-up efforts are not a substitute for a comprehensive vision for meeting the needs of all of our neighborhoods.

As Mayor, I will implement a six-part plan for revitalizing Birmingham’s other 98 neighborhoods:

An Opportunity Agenda for Birmingham Residents and Businesses

Over $1 billion was invested in Birmingham’s regional economy in 2015, but the region’s prosperity has not trickled down to many of our neighborhoods and small businesses creating two Birminghams: a downtown that has attracted virtually all of the Mayor’s attention the past seven years and the rest of Birmingham looking for more leadership from the Mayor’s Office to create opportunities for our residents, our students and our small businesses.  City Hall has to play an active role in creating opportunities for all Birmingham residents and creating an environment where our small businesses can thrive.  As Mayor, I would execute a seven-point “Opportunity Agenda” that would fully leverage City Hall in support of Birmingham’s greatest resource: its people.

Restoring Pride and Trust in City Hall

Birmingham deserves a City Hall that they can trust will always put them first.  The last few years have unfortunately been dominated by infighting between the City Council and the Mayor’s Office with long-standing concerns from citizens and the press regarding the openness of City Hall.  Opening City Hall up to everyone and repairing the broken relationships between the Mayor’s Office and the City Council and other local, regional and state stakeholders will be one of my top priorities as Mayor.
