Former State Representative April Weaver (R-Brierfield) was elected to represent District 14 in the Alabama State Senate – the seat vacated by Cam Ward upon his appointment by Governor Kay Ivey as director of the Alabama Bureau of Pardons and Paroles. Senator Weaver is the first Republican female to serve in the Senate since 2010.
“I am honored that the people of District 14 have placed their trust in me to be their voice of representation in the Senate,” said Weaver. “I pledge to put their interests at the forefront of my work each day while also fighting for and preserving our conservative rights and freedoms. As a lifelong resident of this district, I know the people and the communities, and I will work my hardest to enhance their quality of life and see that our district is positioned to flourish.”
“As the only Republican woman serving in the Alabama Senate, I am excited to be in a position to continue to fight for our conservative values. I look forward to working with my new Senate Republican colleagues to accomplish these goals,” Weaver continued. “Thank you to the people of District 14 for electing me to serve as your senator. I vow to work hard on your behalf and make certain that your voices are heard in the state legislature.”
