Preston Korn Files Nomination Petitions
For Immediate Release
May 29, 2008

(Flagstaff, Arizona) - Preston Korn has filed his nomination petitions with the Secretary of State on Tuesday, May 28th just after greeting the President's plane at Sky Harbor International.

Preston Korn was privileged to be an integral part of making it possible for four living generations of Eagle Scouts to meet the President of the United States.

Korn explained, "Tom Boggess IV had told me that his son, Shelton, would soon be earning his Eagle Scout. Shelton had worked very hard to earn his Eagle badge, particularly for his great-grandfather, Thomas Shelton Boggess, Jr., an Eagle Scout himself, whose health had been beginning to fail."

With Shelton's achievement, the Boggess family now had four living generations of Eagle Scouts.

"I believed that the Boggess family had achieved something unique and special and wanted to help in any way I could so that Tom Boggess, Jr. could meet the President with his descendents, who were also Eagle Scouts."

"I decided I was going to do what I could to help Mr. Boggess meet the President one more time. I contacted a few people who I thought could help and Ken Bennett came through with a phone call to Karl Rove. Eventually the call came from the White House, the arrangements were made, and Tuesday all four generations were able to greet President Bush at the bottom of the steps of Air Force One in Phoenix."

Korn says he "was honored to be there with the Boggess family."

Preston Korn is now the second Republican to file petitions for Arizona's First Congressional District.

"I believe it's important for the people to have a conservative representative who lives in this district and, thus, better understands the needs of those living in the district"

"Thank you to all those who have helped collect signatures to make this campaign possible." Korn concluded.
