Oct. 21 event bonuses

Bonus No. 1: For those interested in reading more about U.S. Rep. Davis, MOBster Atticus Rominger wrote the cover story for the current issue of Thicket magazine.

Thicket: You’ve been labeled a “bipartisan congressman,” as well as a member of a “new wave” of black politicians, is that accurate?

Artur Davis: I’m not big on labels.

Thicket: Why not?

AD: I don’t think they capture the complexity of the public debate.

Rep. Davis will be our keynote speaker Tuesday at the Redmont.

Bonus No. 2: You can register to vote! Empower Alabama will be at our event with all the paperwork you need to vote on Nov. 4. This will be your last opportunity to register (submission deadline is Oct. 24!), so why put it off any longer?

You register, they’ll take care of the rest. Oh, and then you show up on Nov. 4 to vote.

Remember: 5-7 p.m. Tuesday (Oct. 21) at the Redmont with Rep. Davis.
