WASHINGTON-- Our Revolution on Friday endorsed Randall Woodfin for Mayor of Birmingham, Alabama. “Randall Woodfin understands that cities must serve all of its residents,” said Executive Director Shannon Jackson. “Woodfin’s commitment to bringing economic development opportunities to all of Birmingham’s neighborhoods is why Our Revolution is proud to endorse him for Mayor.”
Born and raised in Birmingham, Woodfin was influenced by parents who worked in social work and elementary education. He believes that in order for Birmingham to be successful it must invest in young people and provide them with opportunities to be engaged in the growth of the city.
If elected, Woodfin will develop strategies that will open doors to economic opportunity for all Birmingham residents by investing in transportation infrastructure and youth jobs, reducing neighborhood blight, and fighting for a $15 minimum wage.
"Randall Woodfin will bring a fresh, new vision to Birmingham’s city hall,” added Jackson. “He’s the right choice to make Birmingham a city that works for everyone.”
