Local leaders poured into the Bryant Conference Center today, offering West Alabama residents a look at their community.

The West Alabama Chamber of Commerce played host to a more casual, laid-back version of its Chamber in Session series. Instead of a podium and a microphone, speakers took their seats in a living room-like setting for a panel discussion.

Panelists included Tuscaloosa County Probate Judge Hardy McCollum, Northport Mayor Bobby Herndon and Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox, and topics included budgets, crime, infrastructure and road improvements.

The biggest message from the discussion? There’s never been a better time to live in Tuscaloosa County. Panelists said that’s all thanks to their focus on mutual cooperation.

“We cooperate daily behind the scenes,” said McCollum. “We try to find common solutions to common problems.”

West Alabama Public Affairs Council Chairman Carl Jamison of JamisonMoneyFarmer PC served as moderator for today’s event.
