Sen. Weaver Being Sworn In
As the political action committee representing physicians across the state, Alabama Medical PAC (ALAPAC) was proud to support April Weaver in this special election. At a time when healthcare policy is so polarized, electing candidates who understand these issues and value physician input is a top priority. April Weaver, having previously served as the Chair of Alabama House Health Committee and a Regional Director with HHS, is that type of candidate.
“Supporting April Weaver for Senate District 14 was an easy decision,” said ALAPAC Board Chairman David Herrick, M.D. “From her previous roles in both the Alabama House and HHS, Weaver has consistently been a leader in healthcare industry and an advocate of policies that move medicine forward. The overwhelming outreach and support from physicians in her area, as well as statewide, is a testament to the positive impact Weaver has made both personally and professionally.”
Thank you to everyone that voted!
