This week, the Shelby County Legislative Delegation chairmen — State Rep. Arnold Mooney and State Sen. Dan Roberts — endorsed Republican April Weaver’s bid to replace State Sen. Cam Ward, R-Alabaster, in the State Senate.

“Having served in the State House with April Weaver for many years, I have found her to be a principled and honest public servant who always fought for the interests of Shelby County,” Mooney said. “I was proud to stand with her when she served as Chairman of the Shelby County House Delegation and I am proud to stand with her now.”

“April Weaver has been a standard bearer for conservatism when she served in the State House,” Roberts said. “April has proven she cares for the interest of Shelby County and I look forward to serving with her in the State Senate.”

“Having represented Shelby County for almost 10 years and serving as the Shelby County House Delegation Chairman in the past, I am prepared to represent Shelby County from Day One,” Weaver said. “I am honored to have the support of my colleagues and look forward to continuing to be a strong advocate for Shelby County.”

Weaver served 10 years as a state legislator in the Alabama House of Representatives, including five years as the chair of the House Health Committee.  She served as the chairman of the Shelby County House Delegation from October 2016 through May 2020.

Most recently, she served as the Region IV regional director for the United States Department of Health and Human Services. A registered nurse who holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business administration, Weaver worked for over 23 years as a hospital leader in various management roles in urban, suburban and rural hospitals.

Weaver is running for Senate District 14, which was vacated by Ward after he was appointed to serve as director of Alabama Bureau of Pardons and Paroles.  Senate District 14 encompasses portions of Bibb, Chilton and Shelby Counties.
