The event will also honor several conservative leaders in the Oakland County community. Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson will be bestowed with the Max Fischer Award for his tireless dedication and outstanding work for the county and state. Janice Stoneman will be recognized as Republican Advocate of the Year for her work driving the “Jews for Romney” newspaper advertising campaign during the 2012 presidential election, and lawyer Louis Brown will be named Former Democrat of the Year for his active role in promoting conservative causes in politics and the law.
Additionally, David Trott will present a $1,000 scholarship to an Oakland County high school student with the best 1,000-word essay about political leadership, inspired by the theme: “Abraham Lincoln chose to do what was right, rather than what was expedient.” The student with the best essay will win the scholarship and three VIP tickets to the event.
