          Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison, 4.2.2014.

There are two more days left in this year’s legislative session and we are keeping an eye on Montgomery. It was good to hear that Rep. Greer feels his Secrecy bill, H.B. 379 is gutted by the amendment offered by Senator Cam Ward who has been watching developments in Oklahoma with a similar bill. Quite simply put, Alabama cannot afford to pass that bill and have to fight the appeals that would follow.

          Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison, 3.19.2014.

The meeting began with an update on HB 379, Alabama’s bill to keep the drug manufacturers and the names of executioners’ secret, which is on the agenda of the Senate Health Committee today. We sent out an appeal asking people to call their senator if he/she is on the Senate Health Committee and thank all who did so.

Callie Greer, Mother of a Murder Victim and Advisory Board Member of Project Hope to Abolish the Death Penalty answers Rep. Lynn Greer, R.Rogersville who introduced H.B. 379, aka The Secrecy Bill.


 I wish I could talk to this Greer! It would go something like this: From one Greer to another Greer: How can you ask for a covering up of the Killing of other Humans; for individuals not to  be questioned, interviewed, prosecuted for it, or even told it is wrong???

As many of you know, I participate in the Board Meeting by phone. The Board just repeatedly attempted to call me, but all that could be heard was a loud noise. I am sure the phone company will be back to address this as they were at Holman only recently. However, yesterday the phone was working and Jeff and I discussed the following agenda, which I am sure they are following right now. On a personal note, I am sad about this as I always look forward to speaking to the various Board members one on one. We have been family now for a long time!
