Munson receives Marsh Public Service Award

November 01, 2004

State Senator Donald F. Munson, R-Wash., was recently recognized with the John O. Marsh Institute Public Service Award from Shenandoah University in Winchester, Va.

The Marsh Institute recognizes one state official annually.

Munson was recognized for his 30 years in the Maryland Legislature with special focus on his constituent service and membership on key committees, including the Budget and Taxation Committee.

Munson's role as co-founder of the Quad State Legislative Conference, an effort to bring together legislators from Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, also was highlighted. He served as chair of the conference in 1988, 1992, 1996 and 2000.

The Marsh Institute for Government and Public Policy was established in 1997 and is named for former Secretary of the Army and Congressman John O. Marsh Jr.
