GOPAC has selected Bill Hightower for its 2017 Emerging Leaders program. For years, GOPAC has been a force in national Republican politics in support of leaders who focus on conservative principles to help create jobs and make government more effective.
David Avella, GOPAC's Chairman, said this about Bill: "As we grow the roster of Republicans who are ready to lead in their state legislatures, our 2017 Class of Emerging Leaders – like Senator Bill Hightower – exemplifies men and women focused on boosting their state’s efforts to create jobs and protect their communities.”
To be selected, an Emerging Leader must be nominated by a member GOPAC’s Legislative Leaders Advisory Board. Alabama Senate Majority Leader Greg Reed, a GOPAC advisor, nominated Bill Hightower for this major honor.
