Kubicki Garners Highest Civic Federation Award
Wayne Kubicki is one of ACTA's delegates to the Arlington County Civic Federation, and is arguably the county's top budget watchdog. At the Civic Federation's annual banquet on April 8, he was presented with the organization's Order of Distinguished Meritorious Service award.
As the Arlington Sun Gazette noted in the cover story of this week's edition, it is only the 23rd time since 1936 that the Federation has awarded it's highest honor. In making the award, the Federation said (Adobe required):
"Wayne is one of a rare group: individuals who authoritatively understand the complexities of an important county process and who are willing to work with concerned citizens to analyze and make recommendations for public review and comment. Wayne’s specific and long-term contribution has been to enable educated public debate on perhaps the most critical County function of all, the budget. We all know that ACCF, by informing the public, and by enabling educated debate on critical policy, makes for better community decisions and thus a better community."
