State Senator Mike Fasano was recently honored by the Florida Council on Aging, according to his senior legislative aide Greg Giordano.  At the Council’s conference on August 24th in St. Pete Beach he was presented with an award stating the Council’s  “… appreciation of your advocacy for Florida’s older citizens – 2011.”
 
“In his many years of honorable service in the Florida Legislature, Senator Fasano has been a tireless and exemplary advocate for Florida’s seniors,” states CARES Board Chairperson Dee Thomas.  “He has continually stood up for seniors in the development of legislative policy on long term care and through the appropriations process. Florida is forever grateful for a job well done.”
 
“Senator Fasano is a beloved friend to all his constituents, especially older persons,” comments Sally Gronda, executive director of the Area Agency on Aging of Pasco-Pinellas.  “He has a passion to serve seniors and thus, is well deserving of this award on behalf of the Florida aging network.  He loves seniors and they love him.”
 
‘I am humbled by the kind words and recognition of the Florida Council on Aging and its leadership,” Senator Fasano states.  “During my legislative career I have made standing for the needs of the elderly a top priority of mine.  I shall continue to do all that I can to ensure the safety and security of this important segment of our community.”
