Al made history in 2017 as the first African American woman elected to the Salisbury City Council. She served as mayor, another historic first for the City. She was re-elected to a second term on City Council in November 2019 and now serves as the mayor pro tem. Al is running for election to NC House District 76.
“I’m not going anywhere. I will continue to serve my constituents in Salisbury as a City Council member and mayor pro tem, and then as their state representative in Raleigh. During my time as mayor, I learned firsthand how much control and influence the General Assembly has over municipal governments and budgets. I believe I can be an even stronger advocate for Salisbury and Rowan County serving in the North Carolina House of Representatives.”
