Release: Pat Boone Praises Bill Stanley

November 5, 2011

(Alexandria, VA) – Legendary entertainer Pat Boone, spokesman for the 60 Plus Association, a national non-partisan senior citizen group, today announced that Virginia Senate candidate Bill Stanley has been awarded the group’s Guardian of Seniors’ Rights award. Stanley is running for Virginia’s 20th district Senate seat.

Boone continues to entertain at concert appearances and is also familiar to American audiences as a star of 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.

Calling Stanley a “true friend of the elderly,” Boone, remarked, “I’m still singing at concerts, but today I am singing the praises of Bill Stanley.” Boone, 76, and his wife, Shirley, have been married for 55 years and reside in Beverly Hills, California.

“Bill Stanley can always be counted on to protect seniors, and important programs like Social Security and Medicare,” Boone said. “Bill Stanley will be a tax cutter and a true defender of our Constitutional liberties. 60 Plus calls on over 7 million seniors across the nation for support, so I believe I can speak on their behalf when I say that Virginians will have no finer friend in the Virginia Senate than Bill Stanley.”

The Association’s Guardian Award is presented to Democrat and Republican officeholders and candidates based on their “senior friendly” voting records and public stances on key issues affecting the elderly.
