State Rep. Cam Ward 2009 Legislator of the Year
State Rep. Cam Ward, R-Alabaster, was named the 2009 Alabama Legislator of the Year by the Alabama State Chiropractic Association (ASCA) at the organization’s annual convention.
The meeting was held recently at the Montgomery Renaissance Hotel and Spa in Montgomery. The award was presented to Ward during a meeting of the Shelby County chiropractors who gathered to honor him for his many years of public service.
“Rep. Ward was our natural choice to receive this award because of his exemplary leadership as a member of the House of Representatives," said association Treasurer Dr. Benjamin Smith in a statement.
Smith also said that Ward has been a friend to the chiropractic profession and a tireless servant for the people of District 49 since he was elected in 2002.
Each year, the ASCA presents the legislator of the year award to a member of the Alabama Legislature who has exhibited outstanding service to their constituents and supports the chiropractors of Alabama and the thousands of patients they serve.
Upon receiving the award, Rep. Ward commended the work of the Association in advocating for its members.
“I am proud to be called a friend of the chiropractic profession," Ward said.
Ward is currently serving his second term in the House where he serves on the Education Policy, Judiciary and Rules Committees. He is also a member of the Shelby County Legislative Committee. He is a declared candidate for Senate District 14, a seat left vacant by Sen. Hank Erwin who is not running for lieutenant governor.
Established in 1926, the Alabama State Chiropractic Association is a professional organization comprised of over 375 doctors, students and chiropractors from surrounding states. The ASCA is the largest organization representing chiropractors in the state.
