On Monday, Jan. 20, U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) will visit Escambia County to meet with workers at Brewton Iron Works, located at 132 Mildred St. in Brewton.

The visit will be the eighth stop in Shelby’s statewide jobs and industry tour, during which he will visit a business in each of Alabama’s 67 counties.

“Job creation must be our top priority as a nation, and it will be the focus of my statewide travel,” Shelby said. “It is critical that I hear firsthand from job creators and workers how federal policies are affecting economic growth, and what we can do to create more jobs in Alabama.

“These conversations with my constituents have always played a critical role in informing how I vote on issues before the Senate, and I look forward to traveling throughout the state again this year.”
