Trumbull Democrats will present the inaugural Leadership Award and the Kevin J. Sutherland Inspiration in Democracy Award at the party’s Keys to Democracy Awards Dinner March 26 at Tashua Knolls. For tickets or information, call 203-452-7427.
The Kevin J. Sutherland Inspiration in Democracy Award is being presented to Matthew Kuroghlian, a Trumbull High School junior, for dedicating himself to public service and engaging young people in local and state elections while still in high school. He is vice president of his class and a leader in the Model United Nations club. Matthew became involved in real-world politics through the recent campaign of Congressman Jim Himes and held a leadership role in the 2016 campaign of Lino Costantino for state representative. Matthew also recently formed the Eastern Fairfield County Young Democrats with the goal of bringing interested young people together to help make a difference.
