Congresswoman Spartz Receives Iron Lady Award
WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week, Congresswoman Victoria Spartz (R-Ind.) was presented with the prestigious Iron Lady Award from the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).
“As a strong believer in the power of the states and power of the people, I am honored to be recognized by the organization of state legislators,” said Rep. Spartz. "Margaret Thatcher said that Europe was created by history and America was created by philosophy. I would just add by philosophy of freedom."
“It has been a pleasure working with Rep. Victoria Spartz during my tenure at ALEC,” said ALEC CEO Lisa B. Nelson. “Just as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher faced down the communist threat in her day, so has Victoria Spartz in our day. We need more female freedom fighters like Spartz serving in all levels of government. She is a fierce defender of limited governments, free markets and federalism. I know she wants these principles embraced not only in America, but around the world. I can think of no one more deserving of the 2022 Iron Lady Award.”
ALEC is the largest nonpartisan, voluntary membership organization of state legislators in the United States.
