The Dothan-Houston County Rotary Club is pleased to announce that Representative Martha Roby will be speaking to the Dothan-Houston County Rotary Club at the Club's regular meeting at The Dothan Country Club at noon on February 19th.
Roby represents Alabama's Second Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. She was elected to serve in November 2010 and now sits on the House Armed Services Committee, House Committee on Agriculture, and House Education and Workforce Committee.
Prior to Roby's swearing in, Republican leaders selected Roby as one of only four freshman members to serve on the GOP Transition Team, a 22-member panel tasked with reforming House rules to provide greater efficiency, transparency, and accountability in the 112th Congress. On the Committee, Roby was a strong advocate for commonsense reforms. Among other changes, she supported a mandatory 72-hour public review period for legislation prior to House votes and a restructured House calendar to allow members to spend more time in their home districts, where they are accessible and accountable to the people they represent.
Rotary Club President, Steve Thompson, said, "Our Club is truly honored to host Representative Roby and we are excited to learn more about the issues facing Congress and her views on the direction of the United States."
