FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 14, 2017
(Washington, DC) – Legendary entertainer Pat Boone, spokesman for the national non-partisan senior citizen group the 60 Plus Association, today announced that Virginia 11th district GOP congressional candidate Jeff Dove has earned the group’s Honorary Guardian of Seniors’ Rights award.
In a statement released by 60 Plus, Boone remarked, “I’m still singing at concerts, but today I’m singing the praises of Jeff Dove. Seniors can depend on Jeff Dove.” Boone and his wife Shirley reside in Beverly Hills, California.
Boone is familiar to audiences as a star of music, film and television. Boone has had 38 top-ten hits since his recording career began in the 1950s, and, according to Billboard magazine, holds the record for the most consecutive weeks (220) on the charts by any performer.
Chairman Jim Martin, who founded 60 Plus in 1992, was on hand at an event in the Nation’s Capital to present the award, stated, “Jeff Dove can be counted on to protect Social Security and Medicare. He’ll fight to protect the pocket books of senior citizens and end the wasteful spending of our tax dollars. Seniors have to live within their means and so should our government.
“Jeff Dove is a man of principle who backs up his words with action. Jeff Dove will roll up his sleeves in Washington and get to work. Virginia seniors will have a true advocate on their behalf with Jeff Dove on the job," Martin emphasized.
The Association’s Guardian Award is presented to Democrats and Republicans based on their “senior friendly” voting records. The honorary award is given to those running for office and is based on their views on issues of importance to seniors.
The 60 Plus Association is a 25-year-old nonpartisan organization working for death tax repeal, saving Social Security and Medicare, affordable prescription drugs, lowering energy costs and other issues featuring a less government, less taxes approach as well as a strict adherence to the Constitution. 60 Plus calls on support from over 7 million activists. 60 Plus has been called, “an increasingly influential senior citizen’s group,” and recognized as the alternative to the AARP.
