State Rep. Tom Graves (R-Ranger) will be honored for his tireless efforts to stem the tide of expansive government and to reduce the tax burden on Georgians. Graves will receive an award presented by FreedomWorks, a nationwide grassroots organization, led by former Congressional Majority Leader Dick Armey.
Graves, who founded a conservative policy caucus in the Georgia House, will be given FreedomWorks first Legislative Entrepreneur award at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. tonight. The Republican from Ranger, Georgia, will join four members of Congress and the Florida Speaker of the House who will also be honored by FreedomWorks.
“Lawmakers such as Graves are a rare breed,” said Armey. “There are so many, who just go along to get along, are the best friend of special interests or the media’s best friend. Tom is thoughtful and measured, yet deliberate and isn’t afraid to draw a line in the sand when it comes to standing for liberty.
“We need more of these courageous lawmakers at all levels of government who are willing to stand up for the principles set forth in our Constitution,” Armey added. “It takes bold leaders to act as fiscal watchdogs, that aren’t afraid to ask the tough questions to those who seek to expand government on the backs of hard-working Georgia families”.
Congrats to Rep. Graves.
