The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Award for Outstanding Leadership and Service is our highest annual honor, given to a Democrat who has exemplified through words and deeds the highest levels of leadership and service. The recipients of this award demonstrate clearly what it means to lead others, while working tirelessly in service to our communities, our county, our state, and our nation.
The honor is traditionally awarded in April.
We are working hard to post the complete list of past honorees of this high honor in Cumberland County.
