Alabama's prisons are overcrowded, in disrepair, and understaffed. To be honest... they are a mess. My name is Leigh Hulsey, and I am working to earn your vote on March 30th to represent you and your family in Montgomery.
The prison system in Alabama is a complex topic. It needs significant reform...More opportunities for mental health programs, re-entry training and the evaluation of current laws to ensure they are indeed the best laws for our state.
I proudly support our Law Enforcement Officials and the hard-working women and men to serve selflessly to keep us safe.
Alabama has some of the strictest criminal laws in the country. The legislature should evaluate these laws to protect you and not add undue burden or stress on our prison system. It is great to see our lawmakers working to address our prison's needs, and I look forward to being a part of the solution soon.
Transparency is key. Our Governor's Office is responsible for being open and honest with elected officials and the public about the prison projects themselves
Transparency is key. Our Governor's Office is responsible for being open and honest with elected officials and the public about the prison projects themselves. More needs to be communicated by both the Governor's Office and the Alabama Department of Corrections. Public meetings are a critical component of doing work on behalf of those we are elected to serve. I firmly believe public meetings should have been held in order to allow the public opportunities to voice their opposition, concerns, and/or support for these projects. Maintaining open communication promotes and leads to trust in our government's ability to lead well.
You work hard for your family, and I want to work hard for you.
The new prisons being "proposed" do not solve overcrowding or understaffing but do address the problem of our need for better and safer facilities. More needs to be done to ensure we have adequately addressed all of the issues we are facing in our prison system. I proudly support our Law Enforcement Officials and the hard-working women and men to serve selflessly to keep us safe. Our commitment to them should never waiver. Again, my name is Leigh Hulsey, and I am asking for your VOTE on March 30th.
