    2. Counties encouraged to share pictures, videos of crumbling county roads, bridges

    Attention, County Officials and Employees of all 67 Counties! Although the 2019 Regular Legislative Session does not begin until March 5, now is the time for counties to pave the way for new statewide infrastructure investments. To help raise awareness among state legislators and the general public on crumbling county infrastructure, the Association staff is hoping to share on social media pictures and/or videos of the poor road and bridge conditions across all 67 counties. What can you do to help us express the need for proper road and bridge funding?

    1. Snap a photo or film a video depicting the terrible condition of a county-maintained road or bridge in your county.

    2. Send the photo or video to Abby Fitzpatrick, Director of Communication and Engagement, via email at or via text at (256) 496-0191.

    3. Provide the name of the county in which the featured road/bridge is located, along with the name of the road/bridge — or complete this short fillable form and send it to Abby via email.

    4. For those who are social media savvy, feel inspired to share your photos/videos on your Twitter and Facebook pages. And of course, remember to conclude your legislative-focused posts with #alpolitics to ensure state lawmakers receive our message loud and clear.

    For questions or assistance regarding county road and bridge pictures/videos or social media use, please contact Abby Fitzpatrick.
