"This annual award recognizes public employees who represent the best in public service, and there is no greater sacrifice than that made by Lt. Bruce Britt," said Rick Rowden, who chairs the Boone County Republican Central Committee, the award's sponsor.
Entirely non-partisan, the Robb Award is given annually to employees in all areas of Boone County public life. It is named for Ed, Robb, Ph.D., a former Missouri State Representative and Boone County Presiding Commissioner who died in 2011.
"Ed's family and I appreciate that the Committee has chosen to recognize the late Lt. Bruce Britt," Robb's wife, Rosa Robb, said. "Ed's entire career was in the public sector and he would be pleased to know that Lt. Britt's service, dedication and sacrifice to our community is being recognized in this manner."
The award will be presented at the Boone County Republican's annual Lincoln Day Banquet on April 10, 2015 at 5:30 p.m. at the Courtyard by Marriott.
