U.S. Senator John Cornyn Receives IIAT Independent Leadership Award
IIAT’s Governmental Affairs Director Lee Loftis presented Sen. John Cornyn with the IIAT Independent Leadership Award at the Annual Celebration & Business Luncheon on Saturday, June 17, during IIAT’s 120th Annual Conference & Trade Show in Fort Worth. This award is given to outstanding individuals who demonstrate profound leadership in the spirit of independence — the hallmark of the independent agency system.
Sen. Cornyn has served the people of Texas for the last three decades, first as a district judge and later as a member of the Texas Supreme Court and Texas Attorney General. Sen. Cornyn strongly believes that we need more Texas solutions in Washington, which is why he consistently fights to bring the Lone Star State’s commonsense solutions to the federal level.
“Those who have had the privilege of knowing and working closely with Senator Cornyn know him to be a strong leader, as is reflected in his being selected as the Senate Majority Whip, where he skillfully leads without being overbearing or heavy handed,” said IIAT Governmental Affairs Director Lee Loftis. “Senator Cornyn is a true Texan and someone who has earned the respect and admiration of those whom he leads. In Washington, this is a very rare distinction”
