[r20] Rep. Dermody receives prestigious public service award
Start Date: 6/20/2013 All Day
End Date: 6/20/2013
Entry Description

STATEHOUSE – State Representative Tom Dermody (R-LaPorte) recently received the distinguished Cliff Arnold Award for Public Service. Hosted by the Michigan City Lions Club, Rep. Dermody attended the awards ceremony honoring him for his exceptional dedication to serving Hoosiers.

“I’m honored to receive this award, and I look forward to continuing to serve the people of Northwest Indiana,” said Rep. Dermody. “Since I was first elect to serve the public, I have always strived to put the wellbeing of my constituents first and consider their needs when making any decision. I look forward to continuing to protect taxpayers, create a pro-jobs environment and enhance our education system throughout the summer months.”

Officially known as the Clifford D. Arnold Lions Club Memorial Award for Public Service, the Michigan City Lions Club is the only organization that presents the award. The award honors the memory of deceased Lion, former LaPorte County Sheriff and State Representative, Cliff Arnold. It is presented to any current or past office holder in LaPorte County that demonstrates a history of devoted and dedicated public service.

A three person committee, chaired by Lion Henry Bausback, was responsible for reviewing the eligible candidates and selecting an award recipient. This year, Rep. Dermody received the award for his work during the 2013 legislative session. Through various bills he worked on, Rep. Dermody fought to protect LaPorte County taxpayers by authoring House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1261. Additionally, he worked to advance higher education policy and sought to benefit Hoosier families.

“The work of a state legislator has tremendous challenges and is far from an easy job. This realization played prominently into our selection of this year’s award recipient. In presenting the Arnold Award, we honor a like-minded public official who has worked hard and continues to do so for our city, county and state,” said Bausback.
