Walt Maddox has faith in Alabama voters.
A lot of faith.
So much faith that the Democratic mayor of Tuscaloosa will officially qualify on Friday to run for the governor of the state, believing that the voters of the state will overlook that “D” beside his name and cast their votes for the best person for the job.
“I love this state, and I have faith in the people of this state to make the right decision and to see that what we’ve been doing isn’t working,” Maddox said during an interview with APR. “The people of this state, regardless of party affiliation, want the same thing — and it’s not big government or small government — it’s effective government. Good schools, good roads, good healthcare.”
