State Representative Kevin Tanner (R-Dawsonville) recently received the David Levine Legislative Award from the Georgia Gerontology Society (GGS) during the annual GGS conference. Rep. Tanner was honored for championing and authoring house bills that support transportation efforts that benefit elderly Georgians.

"I am honored to receive the David Levine Legislative Award from the Georgia Gerontology Society," said Tanner. "I believe all Georgians should have access to efficient and dependable transportation services, especially our state's aging population. I look forward to crafting future legislation to promote transit opportunities to allow elderly Georgians to live healthy, productive lives."
