Alabama House Minority Leader Craig Ford (D-Gadsden) has made waves in Alabama political circles by calling for the Chairwoman of the Alabama Democratic Party, Nancy Worley, and the head of the Alabama Democratic Conference, Joe Reed, to step down.
Thursday, October 27, 2016, the Chair of the Alabama Democratic Reform Caucus (ADRC), Sheila Degan Gilbert, wrote in a statement, “Recent comments by State Representative Craig Ford (D-Gadsden) have again brought forth the need for a more energetic Alabama Democratic Party. One cannot effectively defend the lack of action by our Party during the past several months. The Republican leader of each branch of government in Alabama has been under attack in the courts or in legislative impeachment committees. The Speaker of the State House of Representatives and the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court no longer hold office. The Governor is being investigated. Yet our State Democratic Party has been almost silent.”
