It is rare that a chapter can recognize the deeds of one of its own members by presenting him with the Silver Good Citizenship Medal. However, while processing his application for membership, it became obvious that David Meyer’s contributions to our community at the local, state and national levels exceeded the stricter requirements placed upon compatriots for the medal as compared to those placed on nonmembers.
The award was presented on 27 September in Compatriot Mayor Meyer’s City Hall Office. Those in attendance included Fairfax Resolves President David Cook, Past VASSAR President Lawrence McKinley, 3rd Vice President Forrest Crain and BOM member, John Thomas.
The Certificate reads, “ Mayor Meyer’s contributions to multistate governmental committees; elected mayor of a major City, Fairfax, in Virginia; participating in multi-state transportation planning groups to improve our economy; having deep appreciation and respect for Veterans and patriotic organizations, positively showing economic growth results in Fairfax; and, in collaboration with George Mason University, planning for traditional higher education as well as necessary new education and skill development to keep our economic engine tuned throughout the surrounding regions. Mayor Meyer has had a positive, lasting impact on the Northern Region and the City of Fairfax in Virginia, and therefore has been awarded the Silver Good Citizenship Medal.”
