Lunch Meeting with Senator David Suetterlein and Delegates Chris Head and Joe McNamara

·         David Suetterlein is a Republican state senator in District 19, which encompasses all of Floyd County; all of the City of Salem; and part of Bedford, Carroll, Franklin, Montgomery, Roanoke, and Wythe counties. He sits on the Senate Education and Health Committee AND chairs the Health Professions subcommittee that addresses all issues dealing with the health professions.  He has publicly stated that he is pro-competition, including allowing non-MD healthcare providers to provide more services (which also addresses access issues).  He was supportive of and voted in favor of doctors of chiropractic performing DOT physicals.  He has a proven track recording of supporting Chiropractic, and it is our turn to show support for him.

·         Chris Head is an incumbent delegate in the Virginia House of Delegates.  His district covers most of north, east and south Roanoke County and up into Botetourt. Delegate Head sits on the Health, Welfare and Institutions committee of the House of Delegates.  This is an important position for our profession. Chris owns a home health care business for seniors. He is fully aware of many of the challenges faced in health care including interaction with medical professions, the bureaucracy of administrative requirements, and insurance issues.

·         Delegate Joe McNamara graduated from the University of Virginia with a BS of Accounting and a BS of Finance.  He is the only Certified Public Accountant in the Virginia General Assembly.  Joe has completed Masters-level coursework in Taxation from Virginia Tech. As a member of the Roanoke County Board is Supervisors, he successfully reduced the Roanoke County budget without ever raising a tax. As a delegate, Joe championed the largest tax cut in Virginia in nearly thirty years. He looks forward to continuing to develop solutions for a smaller, lighter, and more efficient government in Richmond.


These legislators are great people that our profession must support NOW.  It is extremely important that we continue to establish and maintain these relationships, so let's use our collective power to make a difference!


Please RSVP to AJ LaBarbera at or Jennifer Rathmann at so that we can get an accurate head count.


A campaign donation is suggested but not required.  Make checks payable to David Suetterlein for Senate or Chris Head for Delegate.


Again, PLEASE strongly consider attending this meeting.  It is important to Our Practice Futures!
