Mr. PERLMUTTER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize and applaud
Mag Strittmatter for her outstanding service and commitment to our
It takes great strength to face the heart-breaking issues of poverty day after day, and even more strength to lead others in that fight. Leading The Action Center, Mag has that strength in abundance. She has overseen a revolution in volunteer engagement at the Action Center, where more than 7,000 volunteers contribute annually for the good of the community. She has built on-going partnerships with Red Rocks Community College, Jeffco Human Services and the Metro Community Provider Network to bring resources to clients in one location. In her mentoring she can identify strengths and build the organization around them, with the deep wisdom to see [[Page E1898]] that each person has an important role. Under her leadership, The Action Center's revenue increased by more than 600% since 2002. Directly affecting the community she serves in such a positive way.
I extend my deepest congratulations to Mag Strittmatter for her well deserved honor by the West Chamber serving Jefferson County. I have no doubt she will exhibit the same dedication and character in all her future accomplishments.
