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.

Montgomery mayor Steven Reed proposes 2021 budget with no layoffs, despite pandemic

Aug 19, 2020

Montgomery Mayor Steven Reed said a 10% across-the-board cut to city budgets this spring and higher-than-expected local sales tax collections — boosted by federal stimulus checks — helped the city avoid major layoffs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. So on Tuesday he presented the Montgomery City Council with a budget plan for fiscal year 2021 that’s 6.7% lower than the current year but doesn’t include layoffs, furloughs, higher health insurance rates or cuts to holiday pay for city workers.

Aug 19, 2020

Montgomery Mayor Steven Reed proposed his first ever Operating and Debt Service Budget to the city council Tuesday.

“This is my first budget and it has been one that has been a tremendous learning experience,” said Reed.

The coronavirus pandemic has had a large impact on the city’s 2020 budget, and is proving to have a large impact on the 2021 budget as well. Reed’s proposed 2021 budget has a dollar value of $242,600,312. That budget is about $17 million less than the current year’s budget, or a cut of around 6.7 percent.

In 2020, America lost Congressman John Lewis, who was the conscience of the Congress. Only months later, we now mourn the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Justice Ginsburg, likewise, was the conscience of the US Supreme Court.

Justice Ginsberg is not a liberal hero; she’s an American hero. Someone said that she was the Thurgood Marshall of the women’s rights moment. We are lucky to have benefited from her service on the court.

She broke barriers and through her work, stood for fairness, equality and the promise of a better way forward.

In what will be one of the most consequential elections in recent memory, we must do our part and honor Justice Ginsberg’s legacy by voting on November 3rd. This will allow the next President to have an opportunity to nominate a new U.S. Supreme Court Justice.

At a time when so many of us are concerned about what our city will look like in the near future, I think it’s important to think about the role that public school education will play in that future. In less than two months, we have an opportunity to make a difference in the education Montgomery’s students receive through a Vote for Montgomery Public Schools. Advocating for this cause isn’t a one man job. If we’re serious about better schools and a better quality of education for our children, then this has got to be a team effort. ... See MoreSee Less
