I apologize for just getting to this, but coming back to the office after a week out forced me to reshuffle my priorities. I shot several quick videos the night the Mobile Bay reception. Here’s a couple of the people who spoke that evening – Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson, Alabama Department of Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield and U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne. We had more than 150 people attend this reception, including representatives from many of Mobile’s existing aerospace companies, some companies we are actively recruiting, foreign press and others. It was a great night to tell our region’s story to everyone who would listen. Enjoy. A special thanks to the event sponsors: Alabama Power, Baldwin County Commission, Baldwin County Economic Development Alliance, City of Mobile, Mobile Airport Authority, Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce, Mobile County Commission, PowerSouth Energy Cooperative and University of South Alabama.
