Rep. Tanya Pullin, of South Shore, Ky., was presented with the Livingston Taylor Ethics Award by Executive Branch Ethics Commission (EBEC) on Sept. 30, 2015, at a ceremony held in Frankfort, Ky. Pullin is the first member of the Kentucky Legislature to receive the prestigious award.
Pullin said she was both surprised, and grateful for being honored by the EBEC with the award.
“It was really nice of them to give it to me. It was given by the Executive Branch Commission,” Pullin said. “I commend the Executive Branch Ethics Commission for their hard work, because they are of course citizens who serve and work to enforce the ethics code. It was very nice of them to give me that award I was very surprised. I was truly grateful.
The Livingston Taylor Ethics Award was established by the commission for outstanding achievement by individuals, programs, or agencies, and for those who have made a concerted effort to promote ethics in state government. The Livingston Taylor Ethics Award is given year.
