Thank you for honoring Rep. John Kowalko, Jr. with us!
In May, Common Cause Delaware hosted over 100 advocates, allies, activists, and Delawareans for an event to celebrate Rep. John Kowalko, Jr., a long time leader in the General Assembly and an exemplar of a true community activist.
We were proud to present Rep. Kowalko, Jr. with the John Gardner Lifetime Achievement Award for Delaware, CCDE’s highest honor.
When John Gardner founded Common Cause back in 1970, he wrote, “Our agenda must be an agenda for all Americans – for the poor, the comfortable and those in between, for young and old, for black and white, for city dweller and farmer, for men and women.” Rep. Kowalko’s lifetime of advocacy on behalf of everyday Delawareans has spanned across issues, from public education, to public utilities, to health care. His work is rooted in the spirit of Gardner’s original mission.
We are grateful to all the sponsors and attendees who made the event a great success. And most of all, we are thankful for our members who support our work in a variety of ways – attending events, contacting legislators, and talking to friends and neighbors about the issues that affect us. We couldn’t do it without our members!
