Parents Television Council Launches 2nd Alabama Chapter

Alabaster businessman becomes director of Central Alabama Chapter


LOS ANGELES— The Parents Television Council, the nation’s most influential advocacy organization protecting children from graphic sex, violence and profanity in the media, announced Patrick Lee Bush as the director of the Central Alabama Chapter..


Bush, a father of three, hopes to educate parents about some of the dangers of televised entertainment, “I think it’s important that people know exactly what is being fed to our children via television. Most parents are unaware of what their kids are witnessing and its possible effects while those that are aware are exasperated and overwhelmed since there is no safe haven left for youth and families.  Even the v-chip has proven to be a faulty tool for parents who have searched for help in protecting their families,” says Bush. His chapter will focus on issues like bringing back the family-hour and giving consumers cable choice, while providing families with the most recent news and information regarding entertainment to allow them to make informed and healthy programming decisions.


Bush has devoted his life to helping children and being an active member of his community. He created a charter school system in which children are placed in schools based on intellect rather than their family’s monetary flow, a counselor to fathers on how to better communicate with their children, a former Tee Ball coach, and recipient of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Award for Community Service. Bush is proud to dedicate his time and effort to be part of the PTC’s mission. Bush presently works as Director of Associate Development for a Fortune 200 Automotive Retailer


PTC President Tim Winter said, “Patrick Bush is a dedicated community leader.  His achievements helping the children of Alabama show that when he sets his mind to something it gets done. We are proud to add such a committed individual to our grassroots leadership team.”
