Personal Explanation April 27, 2016
Terri Sewell, D-AL
"Mr. Speaker, on Wednesday afternoon, April 27, 2016, I was required to be in my congressional district in Fairfield, Alabama in order to attend a memorial service for Mrs. Gladys Coleman. Mrs. Gladys Coleman was one of the founding members of the Fairfield Democratic Women. She served as president of the Fairfield Democratic Women, and a member of the Jefferson County (AL) and State Democratic Executive Committees. In April 2015, she was one of seven honorees inducted into the Alabama Democratic Party Hall of Fame. Mrs. Coleman was the first black member appointed to the Fairfield Board of Education during the crucial years of desegregation in the city’s school system. In 1975, she was appointed by the Alabama State Superintendent of Education to serve on the Accreditation Committee for Elementary. As a Member of the Alabama congressional delegation, attending the memorial service was directly related to my representational, legislative, and committee responsibilities. Because of this absence I was not present for Roll Call Votes 166 through 169. Had I been present I would have voted as follows: YES on H.R. 4923—American Manufacturing Competitiveness Act of 2016 YES on H.R. 699—Email Privacy Act NO on Motion on Ordering the Previous Question on the Rule providing for consideration of H.R. 4498—Helping Angels Lead our Startups Act, and NO on H. Res. 701—Rule providing for consideration of H.R. 4498—Helping Angels Lead our Startups Act."
