On July 10 during FHCA’s 2014 Annual Conference in Orlando, FHCA Chief Lobbyist Bob Asztalos was named the 2014 Arthur H. Harris Government Services Award recipient.

Bob Asztalos is a tireless advocate for seniors and people with disabilities. Along with a willingness to serve others, he brings an air of confidence, diplomacy and commitment to the job like no other. Those who work closely with him know he believes there is always time to work one more issue or speak with one more legislator before the day is done. Asztalos is known for his listening skills and his keen perspective on the political landscape. He understands how to approach things in a way that helps to shape an issue so it is understandable, fair and takes a big picture approach to what is best for the profession, now and into the future. He not only brings those attributes to his experience at the state level, he also has an excellent understanding of federal issues and how to navigate the political system on Capitol Hill. During the 2014 legislative session, his political savvy, strong negotiation skills and tremendous dedication helped FHCA pass one of its most successful legislative agendas.

A military background in the U.S. Navy, Azstalos served in the Middle East during the Iraqi war in 2005 and is currently a member of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxilary.
