DEC 1, 2020

Thirteen months after Montgomery voters elected Steven Reed mayor, they went to the polls for another decision Reed said means more for the city’s future.

On Nov. 3, they approved a referendum to raise their property taxes to support Montgomery Public Schools.

Mayor Steven Reed: Montgomery’s resounding resolve ‘inspires me daily’

Nov 25, 2020

This week, our city, like others large and small across the United States, will re-imagine the celebration of Thanksgiving.

The time-honored, fall tradition of feast and family will be vastly different than previous observances. Although Thanksgiving amid a pandemic can seem paradoxical, especially as many of our neighbors and friends are hurting, the gift of true gratitude comes only when we find new perspective. I, for one, have never been more thankful.

Helping MPS improve is the key to unlocking Montgomery’s full potential

Oct 21, 2020

Flipping your ballot over on Nov. 3 to vote for Montgomery Public Schools is a vote to improve student achievement.

This simple action of voting for MPS will help the school system buy new textbooks, provide additional technology such as iPads and Chromebooks for students, and help increase the number of academic opportunities MPS can offer families—such as Alabama’s First Class Pre-K, art, music, AP, and career tech classes.

More than a building, a reinvestment in community centers could impact entire neighborhoods

Oct 16, 2020

Kenyatte Hassel grew up in the Sheridan Heights and Chisholm community centers. He was raised an athlete, spending countless hours on the football field, the wrestling mats and the track.

Community centers provided him with a gym and an outlet — keeping him occupied whenever he was out of school. He learned how to swim in those centers. He remembers when family reunions, baby and bridal showers filled them with noise each weekend.

City of Montgomery OKs $750,000 for recycling center, approves budget

Sep 15, 2020

The Montgomery City Council unanimously approved a more than $242 million budget Tuesday after several late amendments, including a $750,000 allocation to buoy the city’s struggling recycling center.

Montgomery Mayor Steven Reed proposed a fiscal year 2021 budget last month that was 6.7% lower than the current budget but avoided layoffs, furloughs, higher health insurance rates or holiday pay cuts to city workers. The city leaned on previous cuts and a higher-than-expected sales tax collections to avoid deeper cutbacks despite the pandemic.

The New Southern Strategy

Sep 2, 2020

Reed has seen the coronavirus tear through his city faster than anywhere else in the state. The hospitals have run out of beds; medical professionals are pleading for help. If Reed had had his way, he would have issued a stay-at-home order to stamp this out, but he’s limited by the state constitution, which grants the necessary authority only to the governor. So, on June 16, he is standing before eight city-council members with a simple plea: Require everyone to wear a mask.

Twelve years ago we had the opportunity of a lifetime to attend one of several Inaugural Balls following the inauguration of President Obama. Today was another great reminder of how historic that moment was & why I wish we could’ve celebrated another historic occasion with President Biden & Vice President Harris. #inauguration2021 #history #bidenharrisinauguration #newday ...

Mayor Steven L. Reed
If anyone had a right to question whether our democracy was worth redeeming, it was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Because in the face of billy clubs and lynchings, poll taxes and literacy tests, he never gave in to violence, never waved a traitorous flag, never gave up on the country he called home, despite all of the injustices and indignities it brought upon him. Instead, he set out to realize his dream the most effective—and the most radical—way he knew how, by working with others to march, boycott, and sit in, recognizing that, as he said, “Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” The seeds of his courage, his discipline, his vision, and the resilience of all who joined with him took years to bear fruit. But they gave us the Civil Rights Act. The Voting Rights Act. And an American tradition of nonviolent resistance that has rung through the generations, as we saw this summer when Americans of all races echoed his example in standing up to declare that Black Lives Matter—no more but also no less.On #MLKDay, we celebrate his life but we’re also called to live out his values through service of our own. Here are some ways you can get involved in your community: bideninaugural.org/day-of-service/We’re in the middle of a tough chapter for our country, but #MLKDay should serve as a reminder that we have been through tough times before—and emerged from them stronger. But only because we never stopped believing in our democracy. Only because we never stopped working to perfect it. And only because, even in the face of intimidation, discrimination, and unimaginable suffering, we never stopped dreaming of a better day—and never stopped doing the long, hard, essential work of ushering it in. ...

It's been a great week for Morehouse men. Not only did I have the opportunity to celebrate my brother Raphael Warnock's historic win in Georgia, but I also had the pleasure of joining the Montgomery Advertiser and Beasley Allen Law Firm in honoring Pastor Richard Williams as December's Community Hero. Great to see a Morehouse brother here at home recognized for his leadership and dedication to serving others. ... See MoreSee Less

From the very beginning, I've openly shared my belief in urban development across our city. As the only city in the state and one of a select few in the country to receive HUD's Choice Neighborhoods Initiative Grants, Montgomery is still a city for all of us to believe and invest in. With this $450,000 grant, there are great changes to come in the Paterson Court and Centennial Hill communities! ... See MoreSee Less
