Press Release

Representative Martha Roby announced today that she will postpone her departure for the GOP Convention in Tampa, Florida, so that she may monitor the track of Tropical Storm Isaac and evaluate its potential impact on Alabama's Second Congressional District.

"Our top priority is the safety and well being of residents in south Alabama. Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to postpone our departure to the convention while we evaluate the storm's progress. Should Tropical Storm Isaac impact our area, our office will be ready to ensure that the full assets of the federal government are available to Governor Bentley, state officials, and local emergency response agencies.”
