Dear Friends,

As you know, I will be retiring from Congress at the end of the year.  Representative-elect Bobby Bright will be officially sworn in on January 6, 2009 to represent the Second District in Alabama. 

In order to make room for the newly-elected representatives, I must close my Washington office on November 25, 2008.  I will no longer be able to respond to inquiries or open new constituent cases, and Email service to my offices will cease on November 25, 2008.  My offices in Montgomery, Dothan and Opp, will remain open for routine walk-in and telephone traffic until December 19, 2008.

If you need urgent assistance, I would also like to suggest that you check with Alabama Senators, Richard Shelby and Jeff Sessions.  You can reach Senator Shelby’s office in Montgomery at (334) 223-7303.  The telephone number for Senator Sessions is (334) 244-7017. 

It has been a pleasure and an honor to be of service to you over the past 16 years.  One of the most rewarding parts of my job as your representative to Congress has been meeting so many of you in the Second District.  I would like to thank you for having the benefit of your views and advice. 

With best wishes.



Terry Everett
