Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Celebrating Congregation Mickve Israel’S 282Nd Anniversary July 28, 2015
Buddy Carter, R-GA
"Five months after General James Oglethorpe founded the Georgia colony in 1733, Jewish refugees from the Iberian Peninsula landed in Savannah. These refugees started the Congregation Mickve Israel which has met in various locations ever since. The congregation is still operating under the same charter which they received from Governor Edward Telfair in 1790. Using primary sources, the diaries of one of the first settlers and minute books from 1790-1851, a carefully constructed exhibit ties Mickve Israel and its members to events in Jewish history, in the life of the Savannah community, the country, and the world."
Every Child Achieves Act Of 2015—Continued July 14, 2015
Johnny Isakson, R-GA
"In my lifetime, I have been in elected office for 38 years. I have been in every legislative body I can legally be elected to, and I have served on the Education Committee in the Georgia House, the Georgia Senate, the U.S. House, and the U.S. Senate. I don’t know a lot about a lot of things, but I know a little bit about public education. In fact, in 1996, Zell Miller, whose seat I now hold in the Senate, called on me to take over the Georgia State Board of Education when Georgia had a major crisis. So I learned under fire."

After a 29-year-long career, Jim Tudor has recently announced his retirement from the Georgia Association of Convenience Stores, where he has contributed his time and loyalty since January 1987."

Hank Johnson, D-GA

In Honor Of Steve Bollinger June 4, 2015
French Hill, R-AR
"Steve, a young man at the age of 36, died while traveling to Savannah, Georgia, to speak to the Georgia Municipal League. Lin was pregnant with their fourth child, and Steve, who had been a public servant most of his adult life, had not had enough time to build a sufficient nest egg to properly take care of the future needs of his family."
