Jeff Thompson wins Honorary Guardian of Seniors’ Rights Award

Alexandria, VA – The 60 Plus Association, a national non-partisan senior citizens group announced today that Jeff Thompson, candidate for State Representative of District 8, has won the Association’s Honorary Guardian of Seniors’ Rights award. Legendary entertainer Pat Boone, spokesman for the 60 Plus Association, called Thompson a “fighter for the elderly.” “I’m still singing at concerts, but today I am singing the praises of Jeff Thompson.”

“Jeff Thompson will be a tax cutter, protecting the pocket books of senior citizens. 60 Plus calls on over 7 million seniors nationally for support, including nearly 115,000 seniors in the Pelican State, so I believe I can speak on behalf of seniors when I say that they can count on Jeff Thompson. Clearly, seniors will have no finer friend in the 8th District of Louisiana than Jeff Thompson.”

The Association’s Guardian Award is presented to members of Congress based on their “senior friendly” voting records. The Honorary Award is given to those running for state and federal office and is based on their views on seniors’ issues.

Previous award winners include Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, U.S. Senator David Vitter and U.S. Reps. Steve Scalise (R-1st), Jeff Landry (R-3rd), John Fleming (R-4th), Rodney Alexander (R-5th), Bill Cassidy (R-6th) and Charles Boustany (R-7th).
