On Wednesday, August 29, 2018, the Mobile County Democrats elected a new slate of officers to serve on its Executive Committee.
Mobile native attorney Ben Harris III was elected to take the helm as the new chairman of the Mobile County Democratic County Executive Committee.
“I’m honored and humbled to be a part of a great group of dedicated people, who work every day to make our community and our state better for everyone,” Harris said in a statement. “We have a strong and impressive slate of candidates across the ballot and we look forward to doing all we can to see them elected,”
As chair, Harris will mostly be responsible for certifying candidates and party election results, and most importantly, for heading efforts to recruit and support Democratic candidates and initiatives in the Mobile County area.
The Mobile Democrats also elected long-time citizens rights advocate and social worker Aisha Davis-Williams to serve as the new Vice-Chairman of the County party.
Davis-Williams is new to the Executive Committee, but has worked with and supported numerous Democratic candidates in their bids for office.
“I am energized by the resurgence of the Democratic party, here in Alabama, and I am very excited to be an integral part of the Blue Wave movement,” said Davis-Williams.
TaQuitia Winn was chosen as Vice-Chairman of Minority Affairs.
Jerry Williams was chosen to be the Vice-Chairman of Youth Affairs.
Andy Mitchell was chosen as Vice Chairman of Senior Affairs.
John Paul Jones was chosen as Treasurer.
Karen Faulk was selected as Secretary.
