Entry Title Date
In Memory Of Rick Richardson November 19, 2014
Paul Broun, R-GA
"Rick served the Georgia GOP for 25 years as the president and a national board member of the State Young Republicans, and 4th District chairman."
Remembering Carl E. Sanders November 19, 2014
Phil Gingrey, R-GA
"Sanders’s political career began in 1954 when he was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives, and again two years later when he advanced to the State Senate. In 1962, Sanders became the first Georgia Governor elected by popular vote. At the time, he was the youngest governor in the country at 37. He substantially expanded and advanced transportation and education, and supported the Civil Rights movement in a place and in a time where the movement wasn’t as popular."
Welcoming The Guest Chaplain Dr. George Dillard November 13, 2014
Saxby Chambliss, R-GA
"George has been my dear friend for many years. I have had the opportunity to pray with him in public, pray with him in private, and hear him preach in his church. He is a very eloquent individual and such a great Christian public servant in that he is so active not just in the Peachtree City Christian Church but all over the community of Peachtree City. He has been the guest Chaplain across the Capitol with our neighbors, the House of Representatives, on a couple of occasions. He regularly is the guest pastor in the Georgia Legislature under the gold dome in Atlanta. I am very pleased he is here today. I thank him for taking time to join us and for his well-spoken words getting us started in the Senate today."
Tribute To Georgia Military College November 12, 2014
Paul Broun, R-GA
"Once the site of the Georgia state capitol, GMC now is one of only five United States Military Junior Colleges. At the center of its main campus stands the Old Capitol Building where the Georgia General Assembly met from 1807 until 1868 before the capital was moved to Atlanta. As President Emeritus Major General Peter J. Boylan has highlighted, “It was on the parade on the east plaza that every soldier from Georgia marched before going off to defend our values in war … the War of 1812, the Indian Wars, the War with Mexico, and, of course, the Civil War.” In light of this rich history, it is fitting that the institution’s core values are that of Duty, Honor, and Country."
Leigh May, U.S. District Judge November 12, 2014
Johnny Isakson, R-GA
"She graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology, one of the top three engineering schools in the United States of America, with honors, in 1993. Then, in 1998, she graduated from the University of Georgia Law School with a juris doctorate degree, magna cum laude in her class."
