Honoring Judge Dan Winn June 21, 2016
Tom Graves, R-GA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Judge Dan Winn, a good friend and dedicated public servant who passed away on May 10th. Judge Winn served the people of Georgia as Polk County Solicitor, and Solicitor General and Superior Court Judge in the Tallapoosa Judicial Circuit, as well as Senior Judge for the State of Georgia. Judge Winn was a resident of Cedartown, Georgia. He selflessly risked his life for our country as a Marine fighter pilot during World War II and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. After the war, he went on to study law, and had a long and distinguished legal career. His lifetime achievements include serving as Georgia’s Assistant Attorney General, a member of the Georgia Constitution Revision Commission and President of the World Jurist Foundation. Judge Winn was the embodiment of a servant leader and was well respected by everyone who knew him. Like his family and many friends, I will miss Judge Winn dearly but I know he lived life to the fullest and made a real difference in our community, state and country. He will not be forgotten."

"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to a pillar of our community, Pastor Billy Edmondson. This year marks Pastor Edmondson’s twenty-fifth anniversary of service as Senior Pastor of Sutallee Baptist Church in White, Georgia. During his days studying at Reinhart University and the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, he prepared himself to serve. And, through his honorable service in the United States Marine Corps, on the Boards of the Georgia Baptist Mission and the Academy at Double H Ranch, as well as his tenure at Sutallee Baptist, his dedication to service in our community has been unwavering. Pastor Edmondson has made it his life’s work to serve Christ and preach His word both inside and outside of the church. On behalf of the people of Georgia’s 11th Congressional District and the United States House of Representatives, I would like to recognize and congratulate Pastor Edmondson on his many years of service."
