“The Kiwanis Club of Atlanta has been a stalwart in our community for over 100 years,” said Senator Perdue. “In many ways, Georgia is at the forefront of creating opportunity and stability around the world given the leadership of countless major industries, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and nine military installations located in our state. Kiwanis International helps leverage that impact by serving thousands of young people and their families in Atlanta and even more around the world. Every day I am focused on solving the challenges of our time and working to make Washington more results-oriented. I personally want to thank President James Ottley and the entire Kiwanis Club of Atlanta for their warm welcome and their commitment to making a difference in our community.”

“We were honored to have Senator Perdue speak to the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta,” said James Ottley, President of the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta. “We have a long tradition of taking an active interest in the events affecting our city, state, and nation. Senator Perdue follows a long tradition of statesmen and women who have spoken to our club about the events affecting all of us. As a downtown Atlanta business civic club, we have served the children of metro-Atlanta for over 100 years, and through Kiwanis International, children all over the world. We appreciated Senator Perdue visiting our club and taking an interest in our mission. We hope that he will make it an annual tradition.”
