U. S. Rep. Westmoreland Visits Westpark Toastmasters

The Hon. Lynn A. Westmoreland (R-3rd) visited the Peachtree City offices of CIBER Defense Technology Systems (DTS) during the August recess of the U.S. Congress. He met with Ron Smith, Senior Vice President of CIBER Federal, and attended a meeting of Westpark Toastmasters. The Westpark Toastmasters club was chartered in October of 2007 with CIBER DTS as its corporate sponsor. Membership in the club is open to the public.

During the Toastmasters meeting, Mr. Westmoreland presented a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol building in honor of Westpark’s upcoming one year anniversary as a club. Speaking to a standing room crowd he thanked the club for providing people in the local community with the opportunity to develop and improve their public speaking abilities. He went on to say that, in his personal view, community organizations like Toastmasters are part of the moral fiber of our Nation. Mr. Smith accepted the honor as President of Westpark Toastmasters and thanked Mr. Westmoreland for the flag and for his service in U.S. House of Representatives.

Representative Westmoreland entered Congress in January 2005 where he serves on the Transportation and Infrastructure, Small Business, and Government Oversight and Reform committees. He represents Georgia’s 3rd Congressional District, which stretches from the southern suburbs of metro Atlanta – including Peachtree City – into Middle Georgia.
