Dr. Robert J. Bentley, state legislator and a 2010 Republican candidate for governor, will announce his plan for economic development at 1 p.m. today.

Bentley said in a news release that the plan is called “Putting Alabamians Back to Work.”

“Alabamians have been hit with an unemployment rate of nearly 11% and in 2010 our state will be require the leadership of an individual with extensive experience in the private sector and a comprehensive understanding of state government," Bentley said in the new release. “The role of government is to create an environment through which the private sector puts people back to work.”

Bentley is a founding partner of Alabama Dermatology Associates, the largest dermatology practice in the Southeast. In 2002, he was elected to the Alabama State House of Representatives from Tuscaloosa County with over 60 percent of the vote.
