There’s a State Commission to Reduce Poverty. What is it up to?

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

One of the many roles I play is as vice-chair of the Alabama Commission to Reduce Poverty. This is a brand new, permanent commission, and my fellow officers are the chair, Rep. Patricia Todd (D-Birmingham), and the secretary, Sen. Arthur Orr (R-Decatur). Commission members include legislators, community leaders and ordinary citizens.

We have met twice, and I have left both meetings impressed by my colleagues and overwhelmed by our mission.

So, what’s our plan to move forward? Rep. Todd filed our progress report today, which you can read it for yourself here.

I value your feedback as we find our way forward – so please leave your thoughts in the comments section.
