Alabama Democratic Party Mourns Passing of Vice Chair Redding Pitt

The Alabama Democratic Party is deeply saddened by the death of Redding Pitt, current Vice Chair since 2013, and former Chairman, 2001 – 2005.  Redding Pitt served as an attorney with the firm of Farris, Riley and Pitt in Birmingham, Alabama, from 2001 until his death.  A native of the Tennessee Valley, Redding Pitt was appointed by President Bill Clinton to serve as U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Alabama, 1994 - 2001, and he held various government positions at the federal and state level prior to that appointment.

Alabama Democratic Party Chairwoman Nancy Worley said, “Redding was an excellent Party Chairman and Vice Chairman, a scholar of history and politics, and a strong supporter of the Democratic Party’s core principles.”  “The State Democratic Executive Committee, its officers, as well as Democrats throughout Alabama, offer condolences to his son and extended family.  We will never forget his numerous contributions to the Party and to the people of our state,” said Worley.
