Woodall Receives Award for Work on Behalf of Georgia's Seniors

Washington, DC – On Thursday, May 12, 2011, Congressman Rob Woodall received the Guardian of Seniors’ Rights Award from the 60 Plus Association, a national seniors’ advocacy organization.  The Guardian of Seniors’ Rights Award is given to Members of Congress who have demonstrated commitment to working for the seniors they represent.

“I am honored to receive the Guardian of Seniors’ Rights Award,” Woodall said. “Our social safety nets for seniors are in trouble.  I was proud to support the FY 2012 ‘Path to Prosperity’ Budget Proposal, which offers viable long-term solutions for Medicare and Social Securitywhile preserving current benefit levels for seniors 55 and older.”

This is Woodall’s first official award as a newly-elected Member of Congress.

“I will continue to fight for conservative solutions to the problems that currently ail this great nation,” Woodall said.

“There is still a lot of work that needs to be done, but this award provides an opportunity to celebrate what the 112th Congress has achieved thus far.  This award also serves as a reminder that we still have so much more to do.  I will continue fighting hard on behalf of the seniors and all those residing in my district, and I am grateful for all of the support that I have received.”
