OH-18: 60 Plus Association: Bob Gibbs is a “Fighter for the Elderly”

Lakeville, OH – The 60 Plus Association – a national non-partisan senior citizen group – selected Bob Gibbs as the recipient of the Honorary Guardian of Seniors’ Rights award. With less than two weeks to go until Election Day, this recent endorsement is evidence that the momentum is on Gibbs’ side. After supporting his party’s healthcare bill that includes substantial cuts to Medicare, it is clear that Zack Space isn’t looking out for the interests of seniors. If elected, Gibbs would continue to work hard to protect seniors’ Social Security and Medicare.

“I am honored to be granted the Honorary Guardian of Seniors’ Rights award,” said Bob Gibbs. “Protecting seniors’ Social Security and Medicare is of the upmost importance to me. If elected, I promise to continue to work tirelessly on the behalf of Eastern Ohioan seniors.”
Legendary singer and spokesman for the 60 Plus Association, Pat Boone, had the following to say about Gibbs:
“‘The Association’s Guardian Award is presented to Democrats and Republicans in Congress based on their ‘senior friendly’ voting records. The Honorary Award is given to those running for office and is based on their views on seniors’ issues.
“‘Bob Gibbs can always be counted on to protect Social Security and Medicare,’ Boone said. ‘Bob Gibbs will be a tax cutter, protecting the pocket books of senior citizens. 60 Plus calls on nearly 5.5 million seniors nationally for support, so I believe I can speak on behalf of seniors when I say that they can count on Bob Gibbs. Clearly, seniors will have no finer friend in Congress than Bob Gibbs.’” (“Music Legend Pat Boone Sings Praises of Bob Gibbs,” 60 Plus Association Press Release, 10/22/2010)
