Today, the Governor and First Lady attended the Buy Alabama's Best press conference in Montgomery. Members of major corporations, legislators, small business owners, and other advocates gathered in support of Alabama products and Alabama people. This platform works with the Alabama Department of Tourism and "The Year of Alabama Food" initiative. Throughout the year different products will be featured and different restaurants in the state will be highlighted. There are so many wonderful treasures in Alabama, and the Bentley's hope that people will take time to discover them.
Mrs. Bentley said, "One of the best parts of my job as First Lady is to advocate about Alabama. There are so many great things out there and it is my pleasure to bring focus to them. I look forward to working with the Department of Tourism as we spend this year featuring Alabama food."
