Contribution records as of April 2010
Mr French, in looking at your political contributors, it is no wonder why you have refused to acknowledge the citizens of Vincent, who you are supposed to represent in this district.
Our many phone calls to you and numerous letters you have received from us asking for your assistance in stopping this quarry have gone unanswered and ignored. The same goes for the entire local delegation. SILENCE.
You and some of your other cohorts are in the pocket of BARD and Stephen Bradley.
HIGHLAND PAC (Bradley's direct PAC)
VPAC (Bradley's direct PAC)
ALA BIZ PAC (Bradley's direct PAC)
HORIZON PAC (Bradley's direct PAC)
ALA POWER CO PAC (BARD member)
SOUND ECONOMY PAC (PAC to PAC transfers from Bradley PACS & BARD)
ENPAC (PAC to PAC transfers from Bradley PACS & BARD)
list to be continued....
Mr. French, isn't it you on the CBS 42 story and video linked here on this blog; "PAC TO PAC Transfers" saying this is a problem in Alabama and cannot get voted out of the Senate? You are a member of that same Senate aren't you?
On the other link regarding "Shelby County Legislators 2009, Some Contributions", Al.com link to the right, you and your buddies are listed with a lot of PAC money that came from PAC to PAC transfers.
How is it you are the recipient of PAC to PAC transfers (and who they tie to that is against us), but you are against PAC to PAC transfers when it is convenient for you to get "good" press from it?
It is no wonder you have not responded to your Vincent citizens pleas for help in stopping this quarry.
Clearly you are for sale and influenced, not by your Vincent voters, who helped put you in office I might add, to REPRESENT US, but by outsiders and big business that can give you the big bucks to help your bid for re-election.
In 2008 you voted "NO" on a bill banning PAC to PAC transfers. (link to right under PACS Twists & Turns)
Senator Hank Erwin, represents Shelby County, vote "NO"
Senator Jabo Waggoner, represents Shelby County, vote "NO"
All three of you in particular, who sit on the Shelby County Local Delegation, have remained SILENT to your Vincent citizens requests for meetings, letters and phone calls made specifically to the three of you.
It is time for you to go Mr. French and take your partners with you.
You sir are a "poster child" for what is wrong with Alabama politics.
