It’s Time To Write About The Writer…
THE FLORIDA POLITICAL PRESS FAMILY
It’s a dirty trick to sneak an article past the Editor-In-Chief and publish it without his knowledge, but there comes a time when being such dirty tricksters is appropriate, and this is one of those times.
The Florida Political Press family is proud to report that something very special happened this week to one of our own – Editor-In-Chief, Tom Tillison.
A dedicated and consummate writer, whose natural talent for phrasing and framing the important news of the day, Tom was honored on Tuesday for his work ethic and his unwavering integrity by the Florida Chapter of Americans For Prosperity, as the “2011 Blogger of the Year” – and for this well earned acknowledgment of our friend and associate Tom Tillison, we could not be more thrilled.
Tom Tillison – 2011 Blogger of the Year Award
Tom was presented with this prestigious award at the well attended AFP “Keep ‘Em Honest” Banquet in Tallahassee before an audience of over 100 Tea Party members and leaders from across Florida, and a distinguished list of guest speakers and dignitaries including 2012 Presidential Candidate Herman Cain, Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos, former State Senator Cary Baker, AFP National President Tim Phillips and AFP Florida State Director, Apryl Marie Fogel.
What makes this award so meaningful to those of us who know Tom Tillison best, up close and personal, is that we see him as an uncompromising and devoted scribner of the truth; and, a writer who strives to put journalistic integrity above all else, no matter how powerful or influential the people are in his articles and no matter what the subject.
Tom Tillison, we of the Florida Political Press family, tip our coffee mugs to you in congratulations. It is our honor to work with you and to consider you our friend.
