Sacramento, Calif. (April 5, 2019) – Perry Communications Group (PCG), a Sacramento-based public affairs firm, received two highly sought-after awards from the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC) for their work on We Stand With Seniors, a public affairs campaign that ensures California prioritizes the needs of California’s aging population by developing a Master Plan for Aging. In February 2019, Governor Gavin Newsom announced his intention to develop and implement a statewide, comprehensive Master Plan for Aging.
The AAPC Pollie Awards are the most prized awards in the public affairs and political communications industry with each entry carefully judged by a blind jury of professionals. PCG received Gold and Silver Pollie Awards for:
  • Best Use of Social Media in the Digital/Internet – Public Affairs/Issue Advocacy Division
  • Grassroots Program in the Field – Public Affairs/Issue Advocacy Division

“Aging issues rarely receive the attention they deserve and if policymakers ignore the needs of this population, the state budget and economy will be negatively impacted, as will the health and well-being of our state’s aging population,” said Kassy Perry, President and CEO of PCG. “We are thrilled with the success of the campaign getting the attention of the governor and legislators, and are gratified that they are already introducing a Master Plan for Aging and related legislation. Everyone at PCG is tremendously driven and passionate about making a difference and that’s what sets us apart.”
