Senator Shelby Tours RTI

US Senator Richard Shelby (R-Tuscaloosa) makes sure that he visits all 67 counties in Alabama at least once each year for a “Town Hall”.


This year Senator Shelby decided he would visit a business in each county. His DeKalb company of choice: Rainsville Technology, Inc.


Senator Shelby met with management and was given an overview of the plant from construction to their recent expansion, then was given a tour through the facility.




We’re excited to have Senator Shelby to visit us. We’re excited anytime one of our local officials can visit and tour our plant, but it’s a great honor to have Senator Shelby here today.”  –  Perry Bellomy, VP of Administration



I’ve been in the senate a long time…28 years. This year I wanted to visit a business in every county because I’m a pro-business Senator. I’m not an adversary, I want to help you do well. If you over-regulate somebody you cause a struggle and we want you to make a profit. I’d just like to listen to what I can do for you, not to you.”Senator Shelby
