Reed Phillips promoted to ALGOP executive director

Alabama Republican Party political director Reed Phillips has been elevated to executive director.

The Alabama Republican Party Steering Committee has voted to elevate Alabama Republican Party political director Reed Phillips to executive director after the sudden loss of chief of staff Harold Sachs to COVID-19.

“The ALGOP Steering Committee met to discuss staffing issues that have risen due to the passing of our longtime Chief of Staff, Harold Sachs,” said Alabama Republican Party Chair Terry Lathan. “While no one can truly replace the valuable services and passion Harold had for our Party in the role he held, we felt it was necessary to keep the ALGOP on course to continue our important mission and deep successes.”

“Effective immediately, our ALGOP Political Director Reed Phillips has been promoted to the position of the ALGOP Executive Director,” Lathan continued. “He is taking on many of the day-to-day duties Harold executed in addition to his own responsibilities as political director. I hope you will join me in congratulating Reed as he transitions into this new role. Reed is well trained with deep knowledge of our infrastructure which he learned under Harold’s guidance for six years and from working with each of you.”

Lathan made the announcement quietly to Republican Party Executive Committee members before Thanksgiving but asked that the announcement be made public later to give the party and the Sachs family time to grieve Sachs’s untimely passing. Sachs had served as chief of staff for the Alabama Republican Party for nearly 10 years.
