DECATUR—On April 22, 2019, Earth Day, Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) was presented with “The Environmental Scorecard Award,” in recognition of his 100 percent environmental voting record score in 2018.
Rep. Johnson was presented with the award 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 congressman with this achievement. “Today we recognize Congressman Johnson for not only his perfect voting score but for being a cosponsor of H.R. 2696, 2695, 1664, 558, 494 and 5264,” said Thomas.
“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 Congressman 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.”
