Retiring Helms Receives Honor for Service to Families
Washington, DC -- Eugene Delgaudio, Executive Director of Public Advocate of the United States, a Virginia based pro-family group, announced today that outgoing Senator Jesse Helms, of North Carolina, will be the recipient of Public Advocate's Family Advocate of the Month Award.
Senator Helms is receiving the honor because of the uncompromising and unyielding fight he has waged on behalf of the American family during his three decades of leadership in the United States Senate.
"Mr. Helms has truly set the standard for all current and future United States Senators," declared Delgaudio while announcing the award. "He has consistently stood up for his beliefs, regardless of the massive pressure that was constantly put on him from his colleagues, the media, or the radical left. What has frustrated these groups the most is that Senator Helms has not only fought for these values; he has lived them. When so many in Washington have been corrupted by the temptations of power, Jesse Helms has proven to be a beacon of truth and morality. He could not be bought and he could not be bullied.
"While today Senator Helms has retired from the United States Senate, the mark his character has left on the institution will remain for generations to come. There is no one more deserving of this award than Senator Jesse Helms."
The $100 stipend that accompanies the Family Advocate of the Month Award will be sent to the Jesse Helms Center, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization established to promote understanding of the principles of democracy, the free enterprise system, and moral values.
The Family Advocate of the Month Award is given monthly to Americans who fight for family values while exposing the politically correct liberal elite as the hypocrites they are. Each January one of the winners of the monthly award will be chosen as Family Advocate of the Year and will receive a $500.00 award.
Public Advocate has been fighting for the American Family as a non-profit, 501.c.4 organization since 1978. For more information please contact Jesse Binnall at 703/582-7924 or by email at [email protected].
