    Today was a big day on the trail. Artur Davis unveiled his plan entitled "Securing Alabama's Economic Future: A plan to create the jobs of tomorrow, today." Click here to read a summary of his plan. Artur spent the whole day talking about his new ideas to put Alabamians back to work.


    We started the day in Montgomery where Congressman Davis spoke at a press conference on the steps of the State Capitol. The rain held off and it was a great event. Ms. Oveta White introduced Rep. Davis. She is a business owner and president of the Montgomery Chapter of the American Business Women's Association. After she spoke, Rep. Davis talked about the four planks of his plan to create jobs and transform Alabama's economy.

    Next, we went to Birmingham Fastener, Inc. - one of the world's largest manufacturers of T-head bolts. The company employs about 150 people in Birmingham and has distribution centers across the country. The bolts they make are used in structures such as cell phone towers and bridges -- they even supplied 60,000 bolts when the Cincinatti Reds Stadium was built!


    In the packaging operations facility, Artur Davis talked about the importance of supporting our existing industries in Alabama and boosting manufacturing at companies like Birmingham Fastener. He was joined by Mr. Robert Kelly, Founder of Kelly Construction Company, and Mr. Jim Proctor, Senior Vice President and General Counsel of McWane, Inc. Here are some pictures from the event:
