still cityWith Election Day quickly approaching, I want to remind everyone about the importance of Amendment 14 on Alabama's Nov. 8 ballot, which protects laws passed since 1984 that provide funding for schools, hospitals, first-responders and key community construction projects. For UAB, Amendment 14 protects the proposed stadium at the BJCC that will be home to UAB Football and other events. This venue will accelerate UAB Football's ascension to national competitiveness and - like Regions Field - is important to continued downtown revitalization and momentum.

If you haven't already, please inform yourselves about the the impact of Amendment 14 on the future of UAB, Birmingham and Alabama at www.14protectsal.com. Thank you.
