60 Plus Association Honors Sias with "Guardian" Award

7th CD Candidate Recognized as an "Honorary Guardian of Seniors Rights" by Influential Senior Advocacy Group

Arvada, CO… The Sias for Congress campaign today announced The 60 Plus Association has given its "Honorary Guardian of Seniors Rights" award to Lang Sias.
"We must reform social security so that it becomes self-sustaining and no longer adds to our out of control national debt," Sias said. "Doing so means protecting existing benefits for seniors and those of middle age who have paid into the system and are counting on it for retirement, while at the same time making common sense reforms that will enable America to provide benefits for future generations."

Founded in 1992, the 60 Plus Association is a non-partisan seniors advocacy group with a free enterprise, less government, less taxes approach to seniors issues. 60 Plus has set ending the federal estate tax and saving Social Security for the young as its top priorities.

Lang Sias has served in the U.S. military, both as an active duty naval aviator and in the Air National Guard. He holds a J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School, an M.Sc. from the London School of Economics and a B.A. from Vassar College. Lang and his wife, Rene, live in Arvada with their three young children.
