The Senator Louis P. Bertonazzi Foundation Outstanding Citizenship Award for 2009-2010 has been officially presented to the town of Mendon.

Town Clerk Margaret Bondorenko, Assistant Town Clerk Sherry Grant, and Voter Registrars Robert Crotty, Margaret Tetreault, and Warden Carol Cook accepted a check for $1,000 from the former Senator at the Mendon Board of Selectmen Meeting. The money may be used by the Clerk and Board of Registrars to enhance and improve the voter process and voter turnout.

A plaque citing Mendon as the winner of the Citizenship Award was presented to the Board of Selectman, Chairman Lawney Tinio, members Michael Ammendolia and Mike Goodard and Town Coordinator Dale Pleau. The plaque will be on display at the Mendon Town Hall for the next two years.

The most colorful part of the ceremony was the unveiling of a fifteen foot banner that was presented to the voters of Mendon proclaiming Mendon to be the "Best Voting Community" and winner of the Outstanding Citizenship Award for 2009-2010.

This banner becomes the permanent property of the Town and carries "bragging rights" that may be displayed at any time and in any way that the town chooses.

The Senator Louis P. Bertonazzi Foundation Outstanding Citizenship Award was won by Mendon voters in competition with 18 other communities that had been represented in the Massachusetts House of Representatives or the Massachusetts Senate by Bertonazzi. Mendon had the highest total combined percentage of registered voters who voted in the 2009 local election and special U.S. Senate Primary as well as the 2010 special U.S. Senate Election, Local Election, State Primary and November Election.

Mendon was first with 37.76 percent, Sutton second with 37.46 percent, Hopedale third with 34.62 percent, Upton fourth with 32.51 percent and Milford ninth with 30.26 percent.

Representing the Foundation Board of Directors at the ceremony were Treasurer Michael Diorio and Member Joseph Nigro. Other members of the Foundation Board of Directors are Chairman, Dr. Carl DiGregorio, Clerk Attorney David Bertonazzi, Thomas Cullen, Patrick Niro, Cynthia Casey, Gail Crimaldi, and Stanley Jones Nalewaijko.

The 2011-2012 Citizenship Award competition for the 19 towns will begin anew with this year's upcoming local elections.
