Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) was presented with “The Environmental Scorecard Award,” in recognition of his 100 percent environmental voting record in 2018.
Johnson received the award on April 22, Earth Day, at the Georgia Environmental Justice Education and Awareness Symposium, where he also served as a guest speaker for the symposium.
Mandisha A. Thomas, founder of Golden Gate Health Care Resources, was joined by Debra Bazemore, Georgia State Representative HD-63, in presenting the award to Johnson.
“It is an honor to receive recognition from an organization that truly understands that we cannot achieve or maintain a high standard of living if our environment is severely degraded or damaged,” said Johnson. “While I am honored to receive this award for my environmental voting record, my hope is that records like mine will one day become common place and not worthy of special recognition.”
