ALAPAC Supported Candidates Win Elections

ALAPAC Supported Candidates Win Elections

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.

ALAPAC-Supported Van Smith Wins Special Election

ALAPAC-Supported Van Smith Wins Special Election

On Tuesday, Autauga County Commissioner Van Smith won the special election to fill the vacancy in Alabama House District 42 with 88% of the vote. ALAPAC has supported Van since the Primary, with a key reason being the advocacy of area physicians who have known and worked with Mr. Smith for years and who spoke to his support for physicians.

With the victory, Mr. Smith will now turn his attention to the upcoming legislative session. HD42 comprises Autuga and Chilton Counties, and supporting rural health care is a major interest of both area physicians and Mr. Smith.

“As an ALAPAC contributor, it’s important to know I have a voice in our campaign support process,” said Lee Carter, M.D., an Autaugaville family physician and HD 42 resident. “I’ve known Van for years and think he will represent our area well and be a voice for rural health issues.”

Congrats again to Mr. Smith and thank you to the physicians who supported him in this election.
