FINALLY! A state elected official who has the courage to stop kicking that 'old dented prison can' down the road.
Janette Grantham, Director of VOCAL applauds Governor Ivey for her courage, foresight, and determination for a better and safer Alabama.
Today, Governor Ivey announces the next step in the construction of three new prisons to replace current facilities which are collapsing more each day.
Per Ms. Grantham, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know the construction of new facilities is the first step toward solving Alabama's horrible prison facilities. Of course, this construction will not solve all of Alabama's prison problems, but it is a first step forward in our journey to provide humane facilities for inmates and ensure the safety our families and communities.
Thank You - Governor Ivey for your resolve to keep us safe.
