You are probably right. My point is we need to hold nothing back. We have to use ay tactic that will produce results. Maybe this isn't one.
I am losing my mind right now because I am so pissed.

If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong

Just got of the phone with the governor's office. Actually had a very nice series of conversations with his staff. They don't know why it was pulled either but they're trying to find out. Call the office and let them know how you feel. You can either ask for constituent services (this will log the number of calls and subject for determination of discussion priority) or ask to speak to Emily in appointments. I warned them they would be getting calls today, MAKE IT HAPPEN. 334-242-7100

Normally the Governor doesn't get involved with Board of Trustees meetings, but he did get involved with Auburn board stuff, so he may be inclined to do so here

He does have influence over the people who made this decision.

I made the call. They're logging them and passing them along to the Governor--and there have been more than a few this morning. Keep it up!

I called the Govenors office and made my complaint. I took the approach this was a shovel ready project that provided jobs for Alabamians. I explained the stadium was funded and paid for by UAB and would turn a profit. I also talked about how this was vital for the development of Birmingham. When you call be sure to hammer home the economic development stuff!

Remember be Nice.

Jeffrey McLaughlin - Marshall County (District 27) Alabama House of Representatives. Jeff Mclaughlin is possibly the last honest elected man in Montgomery. Jeff is Harvard educated after his undergrad at BSC and his law firm partner, Rodney Edmonson went to Jones School of Law in Montgomery.

Just an idea, get the UAH people involved as well, there are as upset as we are about the BOT, as some of its moves, etc.
