From supporting the Port of Mobile, launching ambitious infrastructure projects, and investing in economic development – the impact Gov. Ivey has made on Southwest Alabama is truly noteworthy.”
Stimpson added that the governor has been “invested” in the Port City’s success since she took office.
“She has played an integral part in several major projects that improve the quality of life for our citizens and continue to make Mobile a great place to live, work and raise a family,” he continued. “Her support for Mobile has been unparalleled, and I look forward to seeing the continued growth she’ll bring to Southwest Alabama in her second term as governor.
