What a year! It seemed Alabama politics was on overdrive on 2017. We got a new governor after the previous one was forced to resign in the fallout of an alleged affair. Birmingham voters picked a new mayor, representing a generational change in the Magic City. And of course Alabama voters narrowly selected a Democrat to represent them in the U.S. Senate, the first time that’s happened in 25 years.
It’s a lot to talk about as we look back on 2017. Offering their perspectives are WBHM’s local government reporter Sherrel Wheeler Stewart, Birmingham Times executive editor Barnett Wright and Alabama Media Group columnist John Archibald.
