Ivey’s office dispels ‘bogus rumors’ about governor’s health
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Gov. Kay Ivey’s office has released a statement to clarify what it calls “bogus rumors” surrounding her health.
“When it’s a slow news day in the summer, rumors run rampant in the Capital City,” said the governor’s communications director, Gina Maiola. “While I did not want to give any credibility to these bogus rumors, I do want to be sure to clear the air and set the record straight.”
Maiola said Ivey, a cancer survivor, “is doing great, and she continues to thank the Good Lord for keeping her healthy and cancer-free.”
Ivey is only the second woman to ever become Alabama governor and will turn 78 in October, a month before citizens will head to the polls to make a decision on whether she should earn a second full term in office.
“We look forward to her leading the state of Alabama for years to come,” Maiola said.
