Saturday, September 30, 2017, Audri Scott Williams, Global Trustee for URI (United Religions Initiative) announced that she was running as a Democrat for Alabama’s Second Congressional Seat in 2018.  That seat is currently held by U.S. Representative Martha Roby, R-Montgomery.

Williams said in a statement, “I’m running because we’ve been neglected by politicians who’ve placed party interests before public interests.  We’ve been neglected by those in power who looked away from the lost factories and underpaying jobs, who turned a blind eye to rising premiums and the return of preexisting conditions, who let our veterans languish in conditions that are beneath their service, and who’ve normalized the lack of accountability in Washington.“

Now, the lines are being drawn again in Lee County. They are coming after our youth once again by telling them they are no longer allowed to engage in student-led prayer before a football game.”
