So what does that mean to the Chiropractic community? Not only will this give the 73rd district a fresh new voice in the district, but it gives Georgia Chiropractors a seat at the table.  TODAY, I need your prayers & financial support to WIN this campaign...and as you all know I am in it to win it!

Dear Colleagues,

We have at this time, in Doctor Karen Mathiak, an opportunity not to be missed.  She has thrown her hat into the political arena to run for state representative for the 73rd district.  Her opposition will be intense.  She needs our help NOW.

She has been a politically active chiropractor for the last 30 years, serving on the state board of examiners, a member of FCLB, and many other committees.  She is a hardworking, dedicated chiropractor, who can represent us well.  This is an unprecedented opportunity for ALL chiropractors in Georgia to have a voice at the capitol.

With her primary election in May, there is a great sense of urgency at this time. She needs our support and money.  I urge all of you to help her political campaign with a donation to her PAC.

We all need to be part of this effort and band together to elect one of our own to Georgia's legislature. Please use her link above to donate at this time. Thank you in advanced for your generous support.  

Sincerely yours,

Bradford J. Pizza, D.C., FICA

Georgia Chiropractors:

As with many of our members, I consider Dr Sid Williams to be an influential person in my life. I am grateful to be standing on the shoulders of this giant in many areas of my life. A direct impact of his legacy is the political efforts of the GCC. It was always an honor to go to the Georgia Capitol with him. Everyone, young and old, would come out and meet with Dr Sid, and they knew what he stood for.

Dr Sid always welcomed the idea of having a Chiropractor in our Georgia legislative body.  Well, I believe he would be happy with the recent announcement of Dr Karen Mathiak as she jumps into the political arena to run for state representative for the 73rd district. However, she does have intense opposition, so she needs our help NOW.

This is a huge opportunity for ALL chiropractors in Georgia to have a voice at the capitol. Dr Mathiak's primary election is in May, so there is a great sense of urgency at this time. She needs our support and money. Myself and the GCC board urge all of you to help Dr Mathiak's political campaign with a donation to her PAC . Myself, the GCC, and I believe Dr Sid Williams too, all appreciate your generous support.  

Always Faithful,

Awais Butt, DC, FICA
President, Georgia Council of Chiropractic

GCC Mission Statement

The Georgia Council of Chiropractic is 100% committed to protecting, promoting and perpetuating chiropracTIC to benefit Georgia's citizens and the ChiropracTORS serving in Georgia.

Our mission is to profess and promote the ideals and principles of the founder of chiropractic, Dr. DD Palmer, the developer of chiropractic, Dr. BJ Palmer, and the defender of chiropractic and founder of the GCC, Dr. Sid E. Williams.

The GCC proclaims that detecting and correcting Vertebral Subluxations is a just and noble cause, which allows people to express 100% of their innate potential for health, happiness and overall well-being.

The GCC also notes that Chiropractic is not therapeutic, and should remain a non-therapeutic  profession, which does not embrace a therapeutic approach to health and does not include the use of drugs or surgery.

The GCC recognizes the legal rights of all licensed Doctors of Chiropractic to practice within the legal parameters of their state law. We welcome as members all, regardless of practice style, who understand and respect the ideals as set forth by the GCC.
