AFP awards Volunteer of the Year and Thomas Jefferson Award

Americans For Prosperity-VA held their day at the capitol and dinner Tuesday in Richmond, and two statewide achievements were awarded for the first time.

Congratulations to activist Suzanne Curran of Shenandoah County for receiving the Volunteer of the Year award. A tireless worker who is constantly on the move, Suzanne was excited about the recognition. When I spoke with her, she had this to say:
"I was thrilled, honored, touched, and excited to be working with Americans For Prosperity in light of the dismal mess that our elected employees have created for us."
Suzanne is one of those grassroots activists who can make things happen and turn out people for an event. I attended an AFP meeting in Woodstock in November, and Suzanne had the room packed with folks. Her heart is in the right place, working for causes she believes in. We need more Suzanne Currans.

Former Senator George Allen received AFP's first Thomas Jefferson Award for his years of working for the people of Virginia, his Jeffersonian values, and the many ways he has helped the Commonwealth.

Congratulations to Suzanne and Sen. Allen.
