Shelby “One of the Most Accomplished Public Servants” in Alabama History
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) released the following statement regarding the retirement announcement of U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL):
“Richard Shelby is one of the most accomplished public servants in Alabama’s history and works tirelessly to advance the interests of our state. Alabama has been better off because of his leadership for over 40 years, and even in my short time up here, I’ve seen firsthand the tremendous amount of respect my colleagues have for him.
“I’ve had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with Senator Shelby over the past few months and pick his brain about working in the Senate and politics. But we never fail to discuss a little football, too. I look forward to working closely with Senator Shelby over the next two years and using the remaining time as ‘film study,’ so together we can better serve Alabama.”
