Honoring Uga Ix, “Russ” November 19, 2015
Buddy Carter, R-GA
"With a 51-22 record, Russ served admirably as Uga IX and is cherished by University of Georgia fans worldwide. The Bulldog Nation is sad to see Russ retire, but we look forward to welcoming Uga X, “Que”, as our new mascot. Que will be formally introduced during the Georgia Southern game on November 21, 2015, in Sanford Stadium."
Tribute To Betty Russell Vandiver November 19, 2015
David Perdue, R-GA
"One of Mrs. Vandiver’s initiatives to show care and concern for the clients at Central State Hospital was to work with the Georgia Municipal Association to create a statewide Christmas gift collection drive known as the Mayors’ Motorcade, which was established in 1959 and expanded years later to support the clients of the State’s regional hospitals. Each year, caring Georgians support the Mayors’ Motorcade by donating gifts to cities participating in the program."
A Tribute To Amelia Boynton Robinson, Congressman Louis Stokes, And Julian Bond September 30, 2015
Barbara Lee, D-CA
"Julian dedicated his career to public service. After his work with SNCC, he served in the Georgia Legislature and as president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). I know his legacy of tireless advocacy for equality and social justice will live on. It inspires me every day as we work to address inequality and reform our broken criminal justice system."
A Tribute To Amelia Boynton Robinson, Congressman Louis Stokes, And Julian Bond September 28, 2015
Robert Scott, D-VA
"In 1965, Julian Bond was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives, but was denied a seat at the State House because of his opposition to the Vietnam war. In 1966, the Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that the Georgia House’s refusal to seat Julian Bond violated the United States Constitution."

Doug Collins, R-GA
"I want to commend Commissioner Black and the Georgia Department of Agriculture for their dedication to preparing for a potential outbreak and the commitment of thousands of Georgians who depend on the poultry industry."
