Jon Kyl appointment to Senate earns praise from seniors’ leaders
ALEXANDRIA, Virginia (September 4, 2018) – 60 Plus Association Founder and Chairman James Martin on Tuesday issued the following statement regarding the appointment of former Senator Jon Kyl to fill the seat of the late Senator John McCain:
“Few people know the workings of the United Sates Senate like Jon Kyl. I have always known Jon to be a workhorse for the people of Arizona and the United States. Having campaigned with Jon in his first bid for the Senate, I have seen up-close how hard this man works. From his early days in the House of Representatives to his election to the Senate and beyond, Jon has always done his best and I know he will continue in his new capacity.
“Jon Kyl is a genuine friend of seniors and their families. He and I have worked side by side to repeal the Death Tax and on other important issues. Jon has a keen understanding of the needs of his constituents and it has always shown in his work.
“Pat Boone, our new President Saul Anuzis, and I join together in expressing our full support for Jon Kyl as an outstanding choice for this position. There is no one who could fill the seat of John McCain who has more integrity, and who has the demonstrated ability and willingness to work with his colleagues on the other side of the aisle, than Jon Kyl. He is the ideal replacement for the irreplaceable John McCain.”
