Montgomery County Commissioner Debbie Lieberman is the proud recipient of the Dayton Bar Association Liberty Bell Award. The award was presented at the 2012 Law Day luncheon on May 1, 2012. Commissioner Lieberman was recognized for her long history of public service and for her leadership to the community in her work as Co-Chair of the Montgomery County Ex-Offender Reentry Policy Board.
“This is a great award and a wonderful honor,” said Commissioner Lieberman. “To have received this award from a room full of people that I consider to be my mentors and that inspire me is a tremendous reinforcement of why I work so hard for the people of Montgomery County.”
The Liberty Bell Award is presented annually by the Dayton Bar Association to one or more citizens who have rendered outstanding service to the community.
“Debbie has been a champion of the idea that by helping people help themselves to successfully reenter the community from prison, public safety will be increased exponentially,” said U.S. District Court Judge Walter H. Rice and Reentry Policy Board Co-Chair.
Law Day was established in 1958 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. In 1961, Congress issued a joint resolution designating May 1st as the official date for celebrating Law Day. It is a day that legal professionals, the courts and the public take time to examine and celebrate our nation’s commitment to the rule of law.
