The Start

The start of anything is a time of extraordinary promise. That is certainly the case with the beginning of Mayor Randall Woodfin’s administration.

We have done a few stories in the past on Mayor Woodfin in our lifestyle magazine, B-Metro, but this is the first time we have focused on him in Biz. He is an impressive figure and stands at the opening of another chapter in Birmingham’s extraordinary run of positive developments and blossoming image. While we stare squarely at the twin problems of weak population and job growth, we have come a long way and the way ahead looks promising
