Tiberi honored for public service

U.S. Congressman Pat Tiberi Tuesday was honored to accept the Excellence in Public Service Award from the John Glenn College of Public Affairs at The Ohio State University for his decades of service to the people of Central Ohio.

“As an alumnus of The Ohio State University, I am especially honored to receive this award,” said Congressman Tiberi. “Throughout my time in public service as a congressional staffer Statehouse member, and now in Congress, serving constituents has been my priority. I am especially grateful that my former professor, Dr. Herb Asher, presented me with this award. He inspired me all those years ago. It was my internship through his class that opened my eyes to the good that government can do and the positive impact it can have. Whether it’s helping someone secure their social security benefits, writing laws to ensure all veterans receive a proper burial, or passing trade legislation to ensure America’s businesses have the opportunity to grow and sell their products overseas, I remain dedicated to working toward a brighter tomorrow.”

The Excellence in Public Service award pays tribute to an individual with an outstanding tradition of service in the public interest. Past recipients include U.S. Senator Rob Portman, former White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles, former U.S. Senator Alan Simpson, and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray.
