I’m David Sher, a small business person who has a passion for Birmingham.
When I speak to groups, I always ask the audience to raise their hands if they think Birmingham has reached its potential. No one has ever raised a hand.
Birmingham has always been called the “City of Perpetual Promise.” The purpose of ComebackTown is to have a conversation on how to create a more prosperous metro Birmingham.
Why do we continue to lose our jobs and our children to other cities?
Birmingham’s centrally located in the Sun Belt, is absolutely gorgeous, and has very smart, generous, sharing people. Why do we perform so poorly?
We don’t want to have out of control growth like Atlanta–we just want to be a livable Birmingham.
I encourage you to be a guest blogger, comment, or send me your feedback.
Let’s create a conversation on how to make our Birmingham region more prosperous and let our comeback begin…
