    Kathryn Bowden has been named Executive Director of Alabama Citizens for Constitutional Reform. It was announced today by Dr. Thomas Corts, chairman of the non-partisan citizens group. "As constitutional reform gains momentum in our state, we're thrilled to have someone of Kathy Bowden's caliber and professional ability to lead our organization," said Corts. "She's exactly the right person to lead us in continuing to build support for changing Alabama's unworkable constitution."

   Ms. Bowden, a Eufaula native, was hired last week by ACCR's Executive Committee. Prior to joining ACCR, Ms. Bowden worked as an attorney in Mobile and with numerous political and public interest organizations. She was executive director of Alabama Voters Against Lawsuit Abuse, and also worked with the Alabama Civil Justice Reform Committee. She served as press secretary to Supreme Court Justice Harold See's successful 1996 campaign and to Winton Blount Ill's 1998 bid for governor.

   "Constitutional reform has clearly emerged as one of the most significant issues to face Alabama in recent history," said Bowden. "I'm happy to be a part of such a diverse group working to move our state forward. I'm particularly heartened by the broad base of support that continues to grow across the state for this cause at the grassroots level. Alabamians from all walks of life and all political persuasions can come together to work on this issue, in what will be a defining moment in Alabama's civic history."

   Alabama Citizens for Constitutional Reform is a non-partisan, grassroots organization working to achieve a new constitution for the state of Alabama. It was organized last summer by citizens from across the state working to replace Alabama's 1901 constitution, the nation's longest such document with over 700 amendments.
