First For ‘The Gipper’ Falls On Super Bowl Sunday

Official_Portrait_of_President_Reagan_1981Board of Equalization Member Senator George Runner is reminding Californians that there’s more to celebrate this weekend than just the Super Bowl. This Sunday, February 6, is also the first annual Ronald Reagan Day since Runner’s legislation was signed into law last year.

 

 

Reagan was President of the United States from 1981 to 1989 and Governor of California from 1967 to 1975. As a reknowned actor in film and television, he was in more than 50 productions; best remembered as the host of “Death Valley Days” and as the star of “Knute Rocke: All American.” He was a spokesman for General Electric and served as president of the Screen Actors Guild.

“A new generation of Americans is growing up without the memory of one of our nation’s greatest leaders,” said Senator Runner. “In light of recent events in Egypt , it’s particularly timely that those of us who remember Reagan use this opportunity to share his legacy as a champion for liberty.”

Last year Senator Runner authored legislation (Senate Bill 944) making February 6 a special day of significance to commemorate the former California Governor and United States President.

Runner said the special day for Reagan, which begins this year on his 100th birthday, will not create a state holiday, nor will it cost taxpayers money.

“Instead, Reagan Day will be what is called ‘a day of special significance’ just like other days we have including one to celebrate John Muir, California teachers and the California Poppy,” Runner added.

To reach young people, Runner has set up a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ReaganDay. He is encouraging all who are on Facebook—both young and old—to visit the page and share a favorite memory, quote, photo or video of the former California Governor and U.S. President.

Those on Twitter are invited to tweet their memories using the hash tag #ReaganDay.

Runner posted his favorite memory, a video of President Reagan’s June 12, 1987 Berlin address, and noted that “Ronald Reagan was a huge historic figure in extending freedoms and liberties around the world.”
