Assemblyman Travis Allen is Named Legislator of the Year by the California Young Republican Federation
Assemblyman Travis Allen received the 2013 Legislator of the Year Award at the California Young Republican Federation (CYRF) Annual Convention that took place over the weekend in Long Beach.
“It has been a privilege to work alongside this energetic group of engaged Californians, and it is an honor to receive this award,” said Assemblyman Travis Allen. “The California Young Republicans are the next generation of California’s leaders and they are building great momentum. I look forward to working with them to increase Republican successes in 2014 and beyond.”
The award highlights Assemblyman Allen’s dedication to forwarding CYRF’s mission to engage young adults in public affairs. An example highlighted during the award presentation was Assemblyman Allen’s tireless efforts in the election of Senator Andy Vidak where he helped bring hundreds of volunteers from around the state to one of the largest deployments in CYRF history. Assemblyman Allen has also been known for attending Young Republican meetings across the state and rallying the groups on the message of hard work, individual freedoms, and the ability to realize the American Dream.
“Assemblyman Allen has truly hit the ground running since being elected in November. Whether he is helping bring volunteers to statewide deployments, firing up our groups with his motivational speeches, or walking door to door alongside us on weekend precinct walks, he has proved himself to be an inspirational leader. His dedication to advancing California shows in his eagerness to be involved and we anticipate many more great things from him in the years to come,” says former CYRF Chairman Joseph Sanchis.
The California Young Republican Federation (CYRF) is the premier young professional organization for next generation Republicans ages 18 to 40. Their mission is to engage young adults on public affairs, provide opportunities for networking, recruit and train leaders for serving in public office, and energizing Californians to get out and vote.
