March 8, 2016, Philadelphia, PA – Councilman Bobby Henon was honored at the monthly luncheon for the Building Owners and Managers Association, or BOMA, with its first-ever Good Government Award. The award, which will not be presented annually, but rather when an individual meets the qualities and characteristics of the award, recognizes a public official who is committed to good government practices and to serving the needs of his constituents and the broader interests of the community while supporting the needs of businesses in a free and healthy economy.
“I am very honored to be recognized by BOMA with the Good Government Award. As Majority Leader, my goal is to support the collective vision of City Council and help each member achieve their individual agendas. As the Councilman representing the 6th District, I want to what is best for my constituents and to improve the quality of life for every Philadelphian,” said Councilman Henon. “In the future, I will continue to put Philadelphia first and build up this city. I want to thank BOMA for this praise and for its partnership on many projects over the years.”
BOMA is a not-for-profit organization who members provide more than 51 million square feet of office space for more than a half million office workers. Its members include building owners, managers, developers, leasing professionals, medical business office managers and corporate facilities managers. Member buildings include nearly all of Philadelphia’s major high rise office towers.
“Councilman Henon’s public track record of tackling difficult issues, making reasoned and well-considered decisions, and balancing the interests of his various constituencies makes him a stellar example of the type of public official we are proud to work closely with,” said Richard Kenwood, BOMA Philadelphia’s Chair. “And it is clear to see why his Council peers recently elected him Majority Leader.”
After the award presentation, Councilman Henon led an informal conversation between BOMA members and City Council members Kenyatta Johnson, Derek Green, Helen Gym and Allan Domb.
