Saturday was a big day for Cullman County Republicans. Their monthly breakfast and business meeting was a packed-out, full house with almost 100 party faithful and several non-member interested citizens in attendance. It was held at the Cullman Elks Lodge.

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill was the keynote speaker.

Alabama Republican Party Chair Terry Lathan was a surprise guest speaker as well.

In addition, three of four members of the Cullman area delegation also took turns at the podium offering their perspectives on the upcoming 2017 Alabama legislative session which officially started on Tuesday: Senator Paul Bussman as well as Representatives Corey Harbison and Randall Shedd. The fourth member – Ed Henry – was unable to attend.

The new Chairman of the Cullman County Republican Party, Waid Harbison, flanked by new Vice-Chairman Alex Chaney, smoothly conducted their first official public meeting since being elected.

Recently departed Chairman Kelly Duke was honored for his key role in Republican successes during his term. He successfully guided GOP candidates to landslide victories in recent elections. He also tirelessly ensured every elected official in the Cullman County was a registered Republican.

Duke received a rousing ovation and a touching large pencil drawing of his likeness as a parting gifted from GOP stalwart and gifted Cullman artist, Pam Willingham.

You can hear the entire of all parties remarks from the podium below.

In this interview – immediately after the meet in concluded – Secretary of State Merrill sat down with Waid Harbison and Alex Chaney for an in-depth look at his unique duties inside of Alabama state government.

Merrill provides an amazingly detailed perspective on the history of the Alabama Secretary of State’s office, discusses high rapid gains in modernizing the state election process, the rollout of electronic polling check-ins as well as his turnaround of Alabama’s formerly moribund business licensing operation

We also ask the Secretary about his intentions to run for Governor of the State of Alabama in 2018.
