HEADLAND, AL (WSFA) – Congressman Bobby Bright was back in the wiregrass Friday.

Since taking office almost a year ago Congressman Bright has been making numerous trips back to his district to hear from residents through his congress on your corner.

"I just want my staff to be visible, I want to be visible, but more important than anything is we want to be responsive to the people," says Bright.

Bright says stops like this give him a better understanding of what the people really want to talk about and one of the biggest issues right now is unemployment.

"Probably the most important and critical issue is employment and job creation," says adds Bright.

For many Henry County residents the announcement of possible cuts for farming in the president's budget was something that also raised some eyebrows.

"You know we have a five year commitment to our agriculture industry and our farmers and we need to live up to that commitment," said Bright.

Bright also says that five year farm bill doesn't need to be altered midcourse.
