RELEASE: Khanna Named Finalist for Outstanding Constituent Services
Santa Clara, CA – The Congressional Management Foundation (CMF) today announced that Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) is a finalist for the Democracy Awards, CMF’s honors program recognizing non-legislative achievement in operations and constituent service by congressional offices and Members of Congress. Rep. Khanna is recognized 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.
“Casework and constituent services form the core of our work in Congress,” said Rep. Khanna. “Located where innovation, intellectual diversity and immigration converge, Silicon Valley rightly demands and deserves the highest caliber level of service our team strives to provide. I deeply congratulate my team for this well-deserved recognition and hard work.”
“As a finalist in Constituent Service, Rep. Khanna’s office is one of the best in Congress,” said Bradford Fitch, President and CEO of the Congressional Management Foundation. “This designation demonstrates that Rep. Khanna has made a significant commitment to being the best public servant for his constituents in California. Rep. Khanna 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,” he said.
The Office of Rep. Khanna was one of four congressional offices across both chambers of Congress to receive this honor. A committee comprised primarily of former Members of Congress and former congressional staffers will select the two winners (one Democrat and one Republican) for each category. Winners will be announced in May, and a ceremony to honor finalists and winners will be held on June 20, 2019.
