The mother of Cullman County Commissioner Doug Williams passed away last week. Wanda Williams was 70 years old at the time of her passing. Doug Williams is in his second term and is the top recruit that the state GOP was hoping to get to run against State Senate Majority Leader Zeb Little(D) next year. No word if this will have any effect on his potential run for the senate next year. I know that Wanda was very helpful to him in his last election in '06.
