first_imgNext week, voters are hitting the polls across the country for midterm elections.In Alabama, candidates are vying for positions locally, statewide and in Washington, D.C., but perhaps the biggest battle is over who winds up governor between Republican and incumbent Gov. Kay Ivey and Tuscaloosa Mayor and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Walt Maddox.Alabama is often found at the bottom of U.S. state rankings, especially for things like education, finances and health care, and that’s something Maddox wants turned around.This election is a choice between the policies of the past or the policies of the future, Maddox said.“I have always been forward leaning as mayor, and I want us to be forward leaning as a state,” Maddox said. “So this election is really about Alabama’s future and which candidate is best able to deliver on a 21st-century technology-driven century, and I believe I’m the best candidate to do that.”Maddox said he’s demonstrated over the past 13 years as Tuscaloosa mayor that he’s a problem-solver, and now he’s ready to take on Alabama’s troubles.WVUA 23 reached out to Ivey for an interview, but she declined the offer.last_img
