In the past two weeks, both ALAPAC supported candidates were victorious in their special election campaigns to the House of Representatives: Van Smith, who won the seat for HD42 on November 4, and Charlotte Meadows, who was elected to serve HD74 just this past Tuesday.
Smith, a former Autauga County Commissioner, received ALAPAC’s support was largely due to the recommendations of ALAPAC contributing physicians. Lee Carter, M.D., an Autauga family physician and HD42 resident, was instrumental in ALAPAC’s support for Smith, who he believes will be a strong voice for rural health issues.
For Meadows, healthcare is an area she knows well. As the wife of Montgomery physician Allen Meadows, M.D., and a former practice manager, Meadows has a wealth of knowledge and experience on the issues physicians face everyday. Knowing this, ALAPAC became heavily involved in her race since she announced her candidacy, and we are excited to have her serve in the House of Representatives.
Thank you to everyone who supported both Van and Charlotte in their victories. We hope that you will continue to support ALAPAC and help us in electing candidates who best represent the professional needs of physicians, their families, and their patients.
