Thursday, Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox announced that he was running for Governor of Alabama as a Democrat.
Maddox released a video pledging to end Alabama’s crisis in leadership.
“I believe in Alabama and I believe in our potential which is why I believe that we must solve the crisis of leadership. In the past 18 months, the Governor, the Speaker, the Chief Justice, and the Majority Leader have left office in shame. And, when courage was required, silence was the only response from Montgomery’s leaders,” Maddox said in a statement.
