LUMBERTON, NJ—Barry Lefkowitz, executive director of the Limousine Associations of New Jersey, will be honored by the Southern Burlington County NAACP (sbcNAACP) this fall. Lefkowitz will receive the 2013 Public Service Award, which we will be presented at the sbcNAACP’s 2013 Freedom Fund Holiday Gala and Awards Banquet on Nov. 1 at The Merion in Cinnaminson, N.J.

The sbcNAACP Public Service Award is presented annually to an individual or organization that tirelessly represents true democracy and American values through volunteering their time, energy, resources and efforts to serve the community at large, especially in areas that specifically benefit those less privileged. 

U.S. Congressman, Robert Andrews, D-1 New Jersey will present the award to Lefkowitz. “I’m very excited because he’s such a long-time good friend,” said Lefkowitz. State Assemblyman Charles Mainor, D-31 will also present Lefkowitz with a joint Senate-Assembly resolution honor.

The LANJ director was crucial in the passage of the Real Interstate Driver’s Equity Act (RIDE) in 2002. The RIDE Act established interstate reciprocity, prohibiting states or licensing jurisdictions, other than the home licensing state or jurisdiction, from enacting or enforcing any law, rule or regulation requiring a license or fee on a motor vehicle that is providing pre-arranged interstate ground transportation service, as long as it meets certain requirements.

Lefkowitz, who is also the founder and president of Management and Government Resources, a government relations and public affairs consulting firm, has had a four-decade career in the arenas of government, economic development, media and education.

Lefkowitz serves as a member of the State Motor Vehicle Commission’s Passenger Transportation Advisory Council, president emeritus of the Greater Lumberton Regional Business Association, co-vice-chair of the Burlington County Community College Foundation, adjunct professor of political science at Burlington County Community College, chairman of two non-profits and president of the board of trustees for his church, Joyful Gathering Spiritual Center.

Lefkowitz is the proud husband of Frances, father of Tova and Chava, and grandfather of Molly Mott and Lily Lind.
