Yaw Receives ACU “Conservative Award”
October 16, 2013
HARRISBURG – State Senator Gene Yaw (R-23) today was presented with the 2013 “Conservative Award” on behalf of the American Conservative Union (ACU) Foundation.
Larry Hart, ACU Director of Government Relations, presented Yaw with the award during a ceremony held at the State Capitol Building.
Yaw was given the award in recognition of his score of 80% or greater on ACU’s 2nd annual rating of the Pennsylvania General Assembly. It reflects his consistent support of conservative principles on a wide range of issues during the 2013 session.
“I am honored to receive this award, and pleased that my conservative voting record is being recognized by the Foundation,” Yaw said. “I was born and raised in the senate district I am very proud to represent and I believe that my voting record is a direct reflection of the constituency I serve. I firmly believe in the words of Ronald Reagan, “Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.”
Founded in 1964, the American Conservative Union is the oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization in the nation. ACU is the leading entity in providing conservative positions on issues to the Unites States Congress, the Executive Branch, State Legislatures, the media, political candidates and the public.
