ICYMI: Music Legend Pat Boone Sings Praises of Joe Wilson

(Alexandria, VA) – Legendary entertainer Pat Boone, National Spokesman for the 60 Plus Association, announced today that South Carolina Representative Joe Wilson has earned the Association’s 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 Rep. Joe Wilson.  Seniors can depend on Joe Wilson.”  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.

On behalf of the American Association of Senior Citizens, 60 Plus Chairman Jim Martin was on hand at an event in the Nation’s Capital to present Representative Joe Wilson with the award.

“The Guardian Award is given to members in appreciation of their tireless efforts on behalf of senior citizens, as so many of our elderly struggle on a fixed income.  Seniors have to live within their means and so should our government.  Rep. Wilson will fight to end the 'Death Tax,' which negatively impacts small businesses, farmers and ranchers throughout the Nation We also particularly appreciate the efforts by Rep. Wilson to assure the financial stability of Social Security and Medicare.

“That’s why Representative Wilson has earned the Association’s highest award, and it’s my honor to personally present it,” Martin emphasized.
