    The legislator needs a governor that will light a fire under their rear ends and get somethings passed.

    Not sure if y'all have been keeping up with the significant floods that have hit Tuscaloosa, but Walt's corrupt "good ole boy" policies have contributed directly to it. While letting his good buddies, who own construction and developer companies, build endlessly while being exempt from impact fees and taxes, our drainage and sewerage have suffered immensely under his leadership. Neighborhoods that have flooded once since their construction in the 1920s and 1930s have flooded several times since the construction of several large student housing complexes and shopping districts in 2010 and beyond. Normally, those developers would've paid taxes and fees to upgrade the drainage system, but Maddox nixed those to artificially inflate growth in Tuscaloosa after the tornado. Only since 2016 have new buildings built have been subjected to fees that upgrade utilities and infrastructure.

    We have ailing infrastructure in Tuscaloosa....some of the drainage is over 100 years old and hasn't been upgraded. We have frequent sewerage overflows into the Black Warrior River that contaminates the river. Hundreds of houses and cars (including mine) were damaged during last Friday's flood. I have never seen flooding that bad in my whole time living in Tuscaloosa, which is going on 8 years. It is only getting more routine and more severe.

    Say no to Walt. Unless you want the whole state underwater.
