Senator Ophelia Ford has been called out by several elected officials including Councilman Harris for missing the most senate votes out of all her peers.
From the article:
Memphis City Councilman Lee Harris is one of five candidates running against Sen. Ford for the District 29 seat in the next election.
“The Fords have a long history of showing up and performing well. This is something different here,” he said. “This is not about a candidate’s last name. It’s about individual performance. Individual performance at the most basic level means showing up.”
Ford’s travel log shows that she missed more than half of her votes. She wrote letters to the lieutenant governor.
