ATLANTA (August 26, 2015) | Sen. Vincent Fort (D- Atlanta) recently received the 2015 Georgia Legislative Black Caucus (GLBC) Legislator of the Year Award at this year’s GLBC Annual Legislative Conference in St. Simmons, GA. He was awarded this honor for his work on this year’s transportation funding bill (House Bill 170) in addition to his contributions on HIV/AIDS public policy.
“I’m humbled and honored to receive this distinguished award particularly since it is bestowed by nominations from GLBC members,” said Sen. Fort. “I remain dedicated to the principles and goals of the GLBC, especially being a voice for those who otherwise can’t fight for themselves.”
The GLBC Legislator of the Year Award is presented to an active member of the caucus who has carried significant legislation in the Georgia State Legislature or whose actions have made a substantial impact in the community. An active member includes assisting the GLBC in fundraising, serving on committees, attending caucus sponsored receptions, meetings, symposiums and conferences.
