Washington, D.C. — Today, the Congressional Management Foundation (CMF) announced U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) as a finalist for the 2019 Democracy Awards. CMF recognizes Rubio for excellence in the Constituent Service category, which focuses on how an office interacts with and serves constituents, especially how it utilizes and leverages specific, methodical, and consistent processes for achieving measurable results in constituent service.
“Serving the people of my home state of Florida continues to be my top priority,” Rubio said. “My staff takes that responsibility seriously. I am proud of the work they do and thrilled the Congressional Management Foundation has recognized their excellence in achieving real results for Floridians.”
“As a finalist in Constituent Service, Sen. Rubio’s office is one of the best in Congress,” said Bradford Fitch, President and CEO of the Congressional Management Foundation. “This designation demonstrates that Sen. Rubio has made a significant commitment to being the best public servant for his constituents in Florida. Sen. Rubio and his staff are to be congratulated for not only being a model for colleagues in Congress, but for helping to restore trust and faith that our democratic institutions can work,” Fitch said.
Twelve House and Senate offices were honored as finalists in three categories: 1) Constituent Service; 2) Transparency, Accountability, and Innovation; and 3) “Life in Congress”- Workplace Environment. House and Senate personal offices self-nominated using an online questionnaire, and CMF followed up with offices to gather documentation and assess the office’s adherence to the established criteria.
