The Alabama Farmers Federation is endorsing April Weaver for Alabama Senate District 14 which includes portions of Bibb, Chilton and Shelby counties.
From Bibb County Farmers Federation President Ashton Cottingham: “April Weaver is a proven leader with all the qualifications and experience to represent our best interests in Montgomery. We support her wholeheartedly.”
From Chilton County Farmers Federation President Lynn Harrison: “April is a public servant who knows how to get things done in Montgomery. She will work hard for the people of this district to make sure all of our needs are represented in the Legislature.”
From Shelby County Farmers Federation President John DeLoach: “April has a proven track record of excellent public service. She is a true conservative who will work hard for us and represent our district well in Montgomery.”
A lifelong resident of District 14, Weaver is a registered nurse with a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in business administration. She has worked more than 23 years in hospital management in various roles. Most recently she served as Regional IV Director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
When serving in the House of Representatives, she was the first woman to serve as chairman of the House Health Committee.
“I am honored to have the support of the Alabama Farmers Federation,” said Weaver. “I know the importance that agriculture plays in our state, and I look forward to working with Alabama farmers and all the people of District 14 to make it a better place to work and live.”
The Alabama Farmers Federation is the state’s largest farm organization with more than 350,000 members. It uses a true grassroots approach to select candidates, relying on FarmPAC endorsements from county Federation boards for local elections.
