The 60 Plus Association
Music Legend Pat Boone Sings
Praises of Jim Pendergraph
(Alexandria, Virginia) – Legendary entertainer Pat Boone, spokesman for the national non-partisan senior citizen group the 60 Plus Association, today announced that North Carolina 9th district GOP congressional candidate Jim Pendergraph 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 Jim Pendergraph. Seniors can depend on Jim Pendergraph.” Boone, 78, and his wife of 57 years, 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, added “Jim Pendergraph can be counted on to preserve Social Security and Medicare, and fight to end the 'death tax.' He'll fight to protect the pocket books of senior citizens and end the wasteful spending of our tax dollars, which has our government now borrowing over 40 cents of every dollar to pay its bills. Seniors have to live within their means and so should our government.
“Seniors in North Carolina have always had a staunch advocate in their corner in Rep. Sue Myrick, and she will be missed. But in her absence, we can think of no better person to take her place in North Carolina's 9th district than Jim Pendergraph. A man of principle, Jim Pendergraph is one of those rare public servants; he’s a doer, not a talker. He rolls up his sleeves and gets to work. North Carolina seniors will have a true advocate on their behalf in Washington with Jim Pendergraph on the job."
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. Previous recipients include North Carolina U.S. Senators Elizabeth Dole (R) and Richard Burr (R), as well as North Carolina Representatives Sue Myrick (R-9), Howard Coble (R-6), Patrick McHenry (R-10) and Walter Jones (R-3). Democrat recipients include U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman (D-NM) and Rep. Sanford Bishop (D-GA).
