Public Servant Of The Year: Ken Cuccinelli

By Greg L | 9 April 2011 | National Politics, Virginia Politics | 4 Comments

The Sam Adams Alliance gave out one of their “Sammies” to Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli at their gala in Chicago last night. “Public Servant of the Year” feels just about right to me, unless we’re talking in the realm of “Attorney General of the United States” under a Mike Pence administration.  For right now though, I’m glad to see that what Ken has been doing to protect not only the Virginia Constitution, but the federal one as well is getting national recognition.

Here’s what Ken had to say in response:

I am grateful to receive the Public Servant of the Year Award from the Sam Adams Alliance. It was an honor to be considered, and it is an even greater honor to be the recipient of an award named for a patriot known for his ability to organize citizens at the local level to work together to achieve the national goal of an independent America built on first principles. I have always held Sam Adams in the highest respect – I consider him Massachusetts’ version of Patrick Henry (I am a Virginia public servant after all…)!

I take my job as a public servant very seriously. And like the Sam Adams Alliance and Samuel Adams himself, I want to see us preserve the America the Founders envisioned: an America based on the principles of limited government, free markets, and individual liberty.

While the founders pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to defend these founding principles, we have often taken them for granted, as we have become complacent that government will take care of our every problem and our every need. For years, we have asked the federal government to do more for us, and all the government asked for in return was a little bit more of our liberty… one little bit at a time.

Today, I am encouraged that citizens and state governments across the country are finally waking up and saying “no more.” We have planted our flag and we are taking a stand. We are seeing federalism reemerge, where people want to return to a federal government of limited, enumerated powers; and where states are serving as a check when the government oversteps its constitutional bounds – just as our Founding Fathers intended. I am proud that Virginia has been a leader in this effort.

Thank you again for this wonderful award. I am only sorry that I cannot be there with you to accept it in person.

    Re Ken: Well deserved.

    Maureen, I agree with the notion that enforcing the immigration laws would in fact cut poverty. Let’s start with disincentivizing any and all reasons for illegals to sneak into this country in the first place. No more free health care, hospitalization, education, food stamps and welfare. No jobs under the table.

    If you are here illegally and get caught, you get deported and the bill sent to your country of origin, with no chance of citizenship EVER. If you are caught a second time you go to jail, and again, the cost of your incarceration is billed to your country of origin. If the US gives any form of aid to those countries, the aid is curtailed.

    On the US side, any employer caught hiring an illegal will be fined more than the amount of potential savings by hiring this miscreant in the first place.

    And people wondered why I supported Tom Tancredo for president in 2008.

    Mr. Horn I don’t know you personally, but I wonder why anyone would have supported Tom Tancredo for President in 2008. He botched the immigration issue in 2006 in a way which I consider criminal, figuratively and literally.

    Mr. Cuccinelli has been a God-send to the Commonwealth and to it’s legal residents.
