Our Revolution: “He’s the right choice to make Birmingham a city that works for everyone.”
Birmingham – Today, Randall Woodfin announced the endorsement of Our Revolution for the August 22nd mayoral election. Our Revolution, guided by prominent progressive leaders from across the nation, seeks to transform American politics by supporting a new generation of leaders who are responsive to the needs of working families.
“Randall Woodfin’s commitment to bringing economic development opportunities to all of Birmingham’s neighborhoods is why Our Revolution is proud to endorse him for Mayor. He’s the right choice to make Birmingham a city that works for everyone.” said Shannon Jackson, Our Revolution executive director. “Randall Woodfin understands that cities must serve all of its residents. He will bring a fresh, new vision to Birmingham’s city hall.”
Randall Woodfin stated, “The endorsement from Our Revolution is significant – it emphasizes the notion that addressing the urgent needs in a community requires an all hands on deck approach. Birmingham faces real threats from growing economic inequality and double-digit unemployment in many of our neighborhoods. We deserve a leader that embraces economic development downtown, yet remains responsive to the needs of the other 98 neighborhoods across the city. The depth of our challenges requires a new generation of leadership that is committed to bringing people together no matter the cost.”
Inspired by Bernie Sanders and his historic presidential campaign, Our Revolution is led by respected progressive activists such as former NAACP President Ben Jealous and national labor leader Larry Cohen.
Woodfin’s campaign is centered on four priority policy areas:
- Opportunity Agenda for Residents and Businesses
- Revitalizing Our Neighborhoods
- Making Neighborhoods Safe and Secure
- And Restoring Pride and Trust in City Hall
