Feb 13, 2012 -
The Executive Director of the Republican Study Committee, Paul Teller, was named “Capitol Hill Staffer of the Year” at the Weyrich Awards Dinner last week. Republican Study Committee Chairman Jim Jordan praised the selection today:
“I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this honor. Paul Teller is a tireless advocate for conservatism in the halls of Congress, and it’s a pleasure to work with him day in and day out.”
Chairman Jordan was also honored at the event, being named “National Legislator of the Year.”
The Weyrich Awards Dinner, in remembrance of the late Paul Weyrich, honors those who have made a major contribution to advancing the cause of liberty through organizations and media and whose work reflects conservative beliefs, principles, and convictions.
Paul Weyrich was the first president of the Heritage Foundation; a founder and past director of the American Legislative Exchange Council; the founder and Chairman of the Free Congress Foundation; and the National Chairman of Coalitions for America. As a Capitol Hill aide, Weyrich was instrumental in the formation of the Republican Study Committee, the caucus of House conservatives.
