Most people know Alexander Shunnarah for his infamous “Call me Alabama” slogan and the massive trail of billboards commonly spotted by travelers along I-65. However, what many aren’t aware of is Shunnarrah’s heart for giving back to the city he calls home.

To show his love and appreciation for Birmingham, the Alabama lawyer just launched the first ever “Shunnarah’s Seasons of Giving” initiative and is surprising locals in the community with various acts of service throughout the month of December.

Shunnurah described this initiative as a, “…small part in giving back to the community and paying it forward.”

177

To begin the month-long program, Shunnarrah stopped by Etheridge Brother and Sister Barber and Beauty Shop in downtown Birmingham last week where he gave locals an opportunity to receive a complimentary haircut.

“It’s been a great initial kickoff in the seasons of giving,” Shunarrah said.

In addition to these pop-up visits, Shunnarah’s law firm is partnering with The Shoe Clinic LLC for the clinic’s third annual ‘Saving One Sole at a Time” Sneaker, Sock and Coat Drive. The drive will take place at The Shoe Clinic LLC on Saturday, December 15th from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Donations are accepted now through December 15th. Both organizations hope to collect 500 sneakers and coats, and 1000 pairs of socks by December 15th.

Birmingham doctor set to open membership-based direct primary care practice in February

(Brownstone Healthcare and Aesthetics)

Unfortunately, complicated health insurance rules, stipulations, expensive bills and long waits at doctor offices are often today’s norm when seeking health care solutions for ourselves or our family. However, thanks to Alabama physician Dr. Kre Johnson, these issues will now mostly be a thing of the past.

Beginning February 1, 2019, Dr. Johnson’s current practice, Brownstone Healthcare and Aesthetics will become the third medical practice in Birmingham to see patients under a new affordable membership-based system known as direct primary care.

Direct primary care members enrolling with Brownstone will pay a flat $70 monthly fee which will cover an unlimited amount of office visits with no co-pay or deductible charges.

215

Additionally, up to four family members can enroll for $185 a month. Under direct primary care, insurance is not required but is recommended in case patients wind up needing surgery or hospitalization.

In a recent interview on ABC 33/40’s Talk of The Town, Dr. Johnson describes her new practice as, “a direct relationship between the physician and the patient.”

Dr. Johnson’s office will only accept up to 1,000 members, which in conjunction with the elimination of excessive insurance filings, will result in a more individualized, inexpensive and streamlined healthcare experience for all patients.

“Like the stories we hear our grandparents talking about, the doctor was a part of their family. I want to be part of your family,” Dr. Johnson said.

Along with regular office hours, Brownstone Healthcare and Aesthetics members will have around the clock virtual access to Dr. Johnson. Her patients will have the ability to ask questions and receive diagnoses from her through phone, email, text or virtual doctor office visits 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Dr. Johnson said she hopes that by eliminating visits to urgent care and the ER, this new system will help save her patients time and money.

AG Marshall urges support for pro life Amendment 2

(Marshall Campaign)

On November 6th, you will have the opportunity to vote on an important amendment to Alabama’s constitution. Amendment 2, if adopted, sends a strong message that Alabamians support the sanctity of life and the rights of the unborn. The amendment also makes clear that there is no state constitutional right to an abortion, nor any requirement that state funding be used to provide the service.

As your Attorney General, one of the most important roles I have is defending the sanctity of life in Alabama. I consider it a great privilege to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves and that’s why I’m urging you to vote in support of this amendment to protect the unborn.

73

Groups like Planned Parenthood have spent over a million dollars in Alabama trying to influence the election and defeat this amendment. These groups do not speak for us and they certainly do not share our values. Let’s make our voices heard on the right to life. After all, it is the right that every other right depends on.

Gary Palmer: Not Your Typical Member of Congress

(G. Palmer Campaign)

Americans are fed up with politics as usual, and for good reason. Voters elect candidates to Congress with the expectation that their values will be represented on Capitol Hill. Too often, voters end up feeling betrayed as their congressmen and congresswomen seem to serve the interests of the Washington political machine, not them. It’s no wonder that the public’s faith in Congress is at rock-bottom.

Gary Palmer is a different kind of leader. Since being elected to Congress in 2014, Gary has consistently represented Alabama values while in Washington. The political machine in Washington has not changed him. He understands the issues that matter to the people of the 6th district and makes them a priority in fact in a newly released social media video his constituents are saying just that:

388

Religious freedom is under attack in America, and Gary has been a champion for people of faith as well as the rights of the unborn. He introduced an amendment to H.R. 5485, the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act. The amendment, which was adopted, protects religious liberty by prohibiting funds from being used to implement DC’s Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Act (RHNDA). That act could force employers in DC to cover abortions in their health insurance plans and require pro-life organizations to hire individuals who advocate for abortion. Federal dollars, whether in D.C. or otherwise, must not be used to take lives or deny religious freedoms.

Second amendment rights are important to Gary. He believes that the right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental right that must be protected from executive overreach, and from those who would impose limits on the types of arms law-abiding citizens are allowed to possess. The Gun Owners of America and the NRA gave him their highest ratings defending the Second Amendment.

Gary is opposed to amnesty for illegal immigrants. He signed the FAIR Congressional Task Force’s No-Amnesty pledge to “oppose legislation that would grant any form of work authorization to illegal aliens.” He believed the first steps to any reform of America’s immigration system will have to be securing our borders and enforcing current immigration law.

On issue after issue, Gary’s track record in Congress proves that he has kept his word to faithfully represent the values of the people in the 6th district. Maybe that’s why Gary is the only Alabama representative to receive a 100 percent ranking from the American Conservative Union.

“I’ve always believed that Alabama is a very special state in a very special country,” Gary said. “One of the great honors of my life is to represent the people of my district in Washington. I will always fight what the values and issues that matter to them.”

There is a movement today to remake America in a way that goes against Alabama values. Gary Palmer has taken a leadership position in the fight against that movement. That’s why it’s so important to vote for Gary on Nov. 6 and send him back to Congress. Find out more about Gary Palmer here.

On November 6, Keep America First

(M. Rogers Campaign)

In less than two years, President Trump and the Republican Congress have accomplished a great deal for the American people. We passed one of the largest tax cuts in American history and repealed 16 Obama-era red tape regulations that were stifling job growth. As a result, our economy is booming. That’s real jobs, more money in your pockets and a brighter future for our children.

We repealed Obamacare’s individual mandate and are working to make health care more affordable and accessible for everyone. And we are taking care of those that have taken care of us by passing landmark Veterans legislation.

We are rebuilding the military. Over $700 billion this year alone. And on top of that the largest pay increase for our brave troops in 9 years.

333

We have approved $1.6 billion to start the Border Wall and we must complete it as soon as possible. We are working to reform our outdated immigration laws and implement a new policy based on merit. We are proud of the work of our brave ICE and Border Patrol agents and we will always respect and support our law enforcement.

In addition, President Trump is reshaping the federal judiciary. In less than 22 months, the U.S. Senate under Republican control, has confirmed two new Constitutionalists to the Supreme Court and added 82 new conservative judges to the federal courts.

But the leftist Democratic Party has other ideas. Led by a New York liberal and a San Francisco socialist, they want to impose Obama 2.0 on the American people. Government-controlled health care funded by raising taxes on working families, open borders and sanctuary cities, abolish ICE, condemn law enforcement and end American sovereignty.

If the Democrats somehow win control of Congress and Nancy Pelosi becomes Speaker, all the momentum and accomplishments we have worked hard for will come to a standstill. President Trump’s America First agenda would be severely threatened and our resurgent economy would come to a grinding halt. There would be non-stop investigations of the Trump Administration based on their view that you are guilty until proven otherwise. The Democrats are gleefully talking about trying to remove Justice Kavanaugh and impeach President Trump.

The choice is very clear in this election between two different governing philosophies. The conservative Republican view of putting America first, cutting taxes, defending our sovereignty and rebuilding the military. Or the radical Democrat view of open borders, government run health care and mob intimidation.

I am Mike Rogers and I represent the Third Congressional District. I work side by side with President Trump in support of the America First agenda. And I fight every day for our conservative Alabama values. On November 6, I am voting Republican. I hope you will too.

Palmer Receives Lincoln-Reagan Award

(G. Palmer Campaign)

Congressman Gary Palmer (R – AL) was honored at last week’s Tuscaloosa County Republican Party annual fundraiser, the Lincoln Reagan Dinner. The event was held at The Zone at Bryant Denny Stadium with Governor Kay Ivey as the keynote speaker. Several Republican elected officials attended the dinner.

Congressman Palmer said he was “honored to be the recipient of the Reagan-Lincoln Award.”

Congressman Palmer received the recognition for his commitment to conservative values. He has faithfully served the 6th District since he was first elected to the House of Representatives in 2014. A champion for individual freedoms, Palmer advocates for congressional polices he knows will lessen government regulations and promote steady economic growth in America.

A strong conservative voice in Congress, Palmer is a member of the Freedom Caucus. He also serves on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, is Chairman of the Intergovernmental Affairs Subcommittee, and is a member of both the Budget Committee and the Committee on Science, Space and Technology.

With the Alabama midterm elections just around the corner, Republican groups from around the state are working hard in their efforts to get voters to the polls this November. The Republican Party of Tuscaloosa is no exception.

Congressman Palmer appreciates the steady support he and his fellow Republicans receive from the county party.

“The Tuscaloosa Republican Party is doing excellent work in West Alabama.” Palmer said.

Congressman Palmer’s consistent conservative voting record reflects his views on issues Alabamians overwhelmingly support, including pro-life values, tax cuts, immigration and second amendment rights.

Bradley Byrne – Alabama’s Conservative Fighter

(B. Byrne Campaign)

Those who know Bradley Byrne best know one thing for sure: he will always fight for what he believes in.

A lifelong Alabamian who was born and raised in Mobile, Bradley is committed to making Alabama a better place to live, work, and raise a family. From supporting pro-life polices to pushing to secure our borders to fighting for a stronger military, Bradley is committed to the policies and values that define the people of Alabama.

Just look at his time as chancellor of Alabama’s two-year college system. Bradley inherited a mess full of inefficiencies, waste, and corruption. Bradley rose to the challenge, cleaned up the corruption, eliminated waste, increased accountability, and helped build workforce training programs that have powered Alabama’s economic climb.

328

In Congress, Bradley has established himself as an effective conservative who gets results for Alabama. For example, Bradley has led the charge to get a new I-10 bridge built over the Mobile River, a project that is critically for the area’s economy and a major safety concern for local residents. He also has supported the coastal economy by pushing the federal government for a longer Red Snapper season for Alabama fishermen.

Most recently, Bradley has made cracking down on illegal immigration a top priority. He introduced the 50 Votes for the Wall Act, which would make it easier to fund President Trump’s border wall and overcome the inevitable filibuster by Senate Democrats. Bradley has also voted to defund sanctuary cities and close loopholes in our broken immigration system.

A strong supporter of our military and veterans, Bradley has used his position on the Armed Services Committee to support Alabama’s numerous military installations and defense-related jobs. Notably, Bradley has worked to increase our naval fleet to 355 ships, which means a stronger Navy and continued work for the Austal shipyard in Mobile.

For our veterans, Bradley supports expanding the Veterans Choice Card program to allow veterans to receive medical care from doctors and hospitals in their local community instead of being forced into the broken VA bureaucracy. He has helped countless veterans from Southwest Alabama receive the VA benefits and care they deserve.

Critically important to rural Alabama, Bradley is leading the Alabama delegation in pushing to save our state’s rural hospitals. Through his work with the Trump Administration, Bradley is pushing for changes to the Medicare Wage Index, which would allow more money to flow to Alabama’s hospitals.

As you can see, Bradley will never back away from a fight when it comes to Alabama and the things that matter most.

So, join your fellow Alabamians in supporting Bradley and his fellow Republicans on November 6th, and let’s keep the fight alive.

Gary Palmer: Not Your Typical Member of Congress

(G. Palmer Campaign)

Americans are fed up with politics as usual, and for good reason. Voters elect candidates to Congress with the expectation that their values will be represented on Capitol Hill. Too often, voters end up feeling betrayed as their congressmen and congresswomen seem to serve the interests of the Washington political machine, not them. It’s no wonder that the public’s faith in Congress is at rock-bottom.

Gary Palmer is a different kind of leader. Since being elected to Congress in 2014, Gary has consistently represented Alabama values while in Washington. The political machine in Washington has not changed him. He understands the issues that matter to the people of the 6th district and makes them a priority in fact in a newly released social media video his constituents are saying just that:

388

Religious freedom is under attack in America, and Gary has been a champion for people of faith as well as the rights of the unborn. He introduced an amendment to H.R. 5485, the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act. The amendment, which was adopted, protects religious liberty by prohibiting funds from being used to implement DC’s Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Act (RHNDA). That act could force employers in DC to cover abortions in their health insurance plans and require pro-life organizations to hire individuals who advocate for abortion. Federal dollars, whether in D.C. or otherwise, must not be used to take lives or deny religious freedoms.

Second amendment rights are important to Gary. He believes that the right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental right that must be protected from executive overreach, and from those who would impose limits on the types of arms law-abiding citizens are allowed to possess. The Gun Owners of America and the NRA gave him their highest ratings defending the Second Amendment.

Gary is opposed to amnesty for illegal immigrants. He signed the FAIR Congressional Task Force’s No-Amnesty pledge to “oppose legislation that would grant any form of work authorization to illegal aliens.” He believed the first steps to any reform of America’s immigration system will have to be securing our borders and enforcing current immigration law.

On issue after issue, Gary’s track record in Congress proves that he has kept his word to faithfully represent the values of the people in the 6th district. Maybe that’s why Gary is the only Alabama representative to receive a 100 percent ranking from the American Conservative Union.

“I’ve always believed that Alabama is a very special state in a very special country,” Gary said. “One of the great honors of my life is to represent the people of my district in Washington. I will always fight what the values and issues that matter to them.”

There is a movement today to remake America in a way that goes against Alabama values. Gary Palmer has taken a leadership position in the fight against that movement. That’s why it’s so important to vote for Gary on Nov. 6 and send him back to Congress. Find out more about Gary Palmer here.

On November 6, Keep America First

(M. Rogers Campaign)

In less than two years, President Trump and the Republican Congress have accomplished a great deal for the American people. We passed one of the largest tax cuts in American history and repealed 16 Obama-era red tape regulations that were stifling job growth. As a result, our economy is booming. That’s real jobs, more money in your pockets and a brighter future for our children.

We repealed Obamacare’s individual mandate and are working to make health care more affordable and accessible for everyone. And we are taking care of those that have taken care of us by passing landmark Veterans legislation.

We are rebuilding the military. Over $700 billion this year alone. And on top of that the largest pay increase for our brave troops in 9 years.

333

We have approved $1.6 billion to start the Border Wall and we must complete it as soon as possible. We are working to reform our outdated immigration laws and implement a new policy based on merit. We are proud of the work of our brave ICE and Border Patrol agents and we will always respect and support our law enforcement.

In addition, President Trump is reshaping the federal judiciary. In less than 22 months, the U.S. Senate under Republican control, has confirmed two new Constitutionalists to the Supreme Court and added 82 new conservative judges to the federal courts.

But the leftist Democratic Party has other ideas. Led by a New York liberal and a San Francisco socialist, they want to impose Obama 2.0 on the American people. Government-controlled health care funded by raising taxes on working families, open borders and sanctuary cities, abolish ICE, condemn law enforcement and end American sovereignty.

If the Democrats somehow win control of Congress and Nancy Pelosi becomes Speaker, all the momentum and accomplishments we have worked hard for will come to a standstill. President Trump’s America First agenda would be severely threatened and our resurgent economy would come to a grinding halt. There would be non-stop investigations of the Trump Administration based on their view that you are guilty until proven otherwise. The Democrats are gleefully talking about trying to remove Justice Kavanaugh and impeach President Trump.

The choice is very clear in this election between two different governing philosophies. The conservative Republican view of putting America first, cutting taxes, defending our sovereignty and rebuilding the military. Or the radical Democrat view of open borders, government run health care and mob intimidation.

I am Mike Rogers and I represent the Third Congressional District. I work side by side with President Trump in support of the America First agenda. And I fight every day for our conservative Alabama values. On November 6, I am voting Republican. I hope you will too.

A proven Republican conservative, Rep. Arnold Mooney serves House District 43

(Mooney Campaign)

Citing his conservative, commonsense, businessman’s approach to government, State Representative Arnold Mooney (R–North Shelby) is seeking a second term as the representative for House District 43, which covers much of North Shelby County.

“As a House member, I have stood up for the conservative beliefs, morals, and values that define Alabamians and the Alabama Republican Party, worked to ensure our state budgets spend within their means, and fought against the passage of tax increases on the citizens of our state,” Mooney said. “We have also successfully implemented several needed reforms that will ensure Alabama does not look back as we continue to move forward building a sound, job growth economy. More work remains to be done and I look forward to doing my part while serving a second term in Montgomery.”

359

Since taking office in 2014, Mooney sponsored and co-sponsored 22 bills that passed, several received national attention. National labor unions increased their efforts to organize industrial facilities across the southeast and experienced successes that included, Volkswagen in Tennessee and Golden Dragon in Wilcox County, prompted Mooney to sponsor and pass a constitutional amendment establishing Alabama as a “right-to-work” state. This provides non-union workers with blanket employment protections. Voters concurred and ratified Mooney’s constitutional amendment by a 70 percent to 30 percent margin on the 2016 election ballot. Mooney also sponsored and passed the “Health Care Rights of Conscience Act,” which provides civil and criminal immunity for Alabama health care workers who refuse to perform certain procedures, such as services relating to abortion, human cloning, human embryonic stem cell research, and sterilization, that violate their sincerely-held religious beliefs.

Employed as a commercial realtor, Arnold Mooney and his wife, Kelly, have three grown children and eight grandchildren. They are active members of Meadow Brook Baptist Church

As the House Sponsor for the Closed Primary Run-off Bill, he was successful in securing its passage, thereby ending cross-over voting in Alabama, and ensuring integrity in our elections. By repeatedly sponsoring House legislation to end the practice of charging Lodging Tax on Meeting rooms for conventions, events and social occasions, Mooney is responsible for the Department of Revenue ending its anti-competitive assessment of the tax.

During the 2018 Session Mooney was the House Sponsor for the successful passage of the DUI-Inter Lock Bill that makes our roadways safer from drunk drivers by requiring more use of Interlock devices. He also sponsored the passage of the Freedom of Religious Liberty and Constitutional Display of the Ten Commandments Amendment which will be voted on in November and the Alabama Electronic Security Board of licensure Bill providing protection to Senior Citizens from high-pressure sales tactics and unwanted security installations. Mooney was also the House Sponsor of legislation that has put a spotlight on and begun the favorable discussion of ending Civil Asset Forfeiture problems in Alabama.
