Atlanta, GA, October 3, 2016 – The Post Reports, Special – Sen. Elena Parent (D – Atlanta) honored U.S. Ambassador David Adelman for his dedication and service to the citizens of Georgia with a bridge dedication ceremony on Friday, September 30, 2016.

“Ambassador Adelman worked tirelessly throughout his career to better our state for the citizens who live, work and play here,” said Sen. Parent. “It was a privilege to have the opportunity to honor him for his commitment to the people of Georgia.”
“It was a privilege to serve the people of Georgia as a lawmaker as well as the United States as a diplomat. Our security and prosperity are strongest when we build bridges between countries and communities,” said Ambassador Adelman. “I am truly humbled by my former colleagues in the General Assembly honoring me in this way.”
In addition to the bridge dedication, Ambassador Adelman formally donated his official papers, including speeches, notes, meeting materials, travel itineraries, strategic planning documents, official correspondence, legislation and committee work, which document his diplomatic and legislative service, to the University of Georgia Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies.
