A fascinating story on the 40-year alliance between Paul Hubbert and Joe Reed appeared in The Montgomery Advertiser last month. Having known Paul and Joe for a long time, I can say based on first-hand experience that they have made a very good team. I believe that AEA has been good for Alabama teachers and also good for education in our state. I consider both of these men to be my very good friends and I appreciate what they have done over the years. It’s sorta interesting to see politicians taking shots at these two men, especially at Paul.
Even Paul’s public detractors, on occasion, privately have asked for his political help. I never have understood that sort of thing, but maybe it’s the way politics works these days. Personally, I would rather have the AEA membership in my corner than against me if I became interested in seeking a statewide political office. I also believe that if our elected officials over the years had worked as hard and been as successful in their jobs as Paul has been in his vocation, our state would be much better off today than it is.
