ATLANTA— State Representative Katie Dempsey (R-Rome) received the Conservative All-Stars of the Georgia General Assembly ACU Conservative Award from the American Conservative Union (ACU) on Tuesday, August 13, 2013.
“I want to thank the American Conservative Union for this award,” said Rep. Dempsey. “I am honored to be recognized and to work as a conservative leader in Georgia.”
Rep. Dempsey was recognized for her score of 80 percent on the ACU 2013 State Legislative Rankings. This ranking is based on the consistency of her votes and support for key conservative principles on a wide range of issues during the 2013 Legislative Session.

ACU is the oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization in the nation. For more than forty years, ACU has served as an umbrella organization harnessing collective strengths of conservative organizations fighting for Americans who are concerned with liberty, personal responsibility, traditional values, and strong national defense. As America’s premier conservative voice, ACU is the leading entity in providing conservative positions on issues to Congress, the Executive Branch, State Legislatures, the media political candidates, and the public.
Representative Katie Dempsey represents the citizens of District 13, which includes portions of Floyd County. She was elected into the House of Representatives in 2006, and currently serves as the Chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Human Resources.
