Darwin Singleton of Your15TV in Mobile, Ala., reports how Business Insider reporter Julie Zeveloff, who recently wrote an article naming the Alabama city as the third worst in the country, has accepted an invitation to visit.

Singleton writes, “So Stimpson and staff started a campaign within their campaign, aimed, not at Mobile voters, but directly at… Julie Zeveloff.

“‘We created a website and then we just started inundating her with messages through Twitter and Facebook,’ he said. ‘And we had some signs made about the size of a campaign yard sign that said, Julie, wish you were here!’

“To Stimpson’s surprise and delight, Julie has accepted his invitation and will be arriving in the nation’s third most miserable city on Thursday.

“Reached in New York by phone, Julie Zeveloff  said she’s excited about her upcoming visit.

“She said she’s getting a lot of e-mails from Mobilians telling her places to eat and sight to see as she explores the less miserable side of Mobile.”
