Del. Rust Receives ‘Distinguished Public Service Award’

Delegate Tom Rust (R-86) was recently honored by the membership of the Virginia Association of Health Plans at their Legislative Fall Forum luncheon on Dec 3rd. Rust was presented with the Distinguished Public Service Award for 2012 in the House of Delegates; a similar award went to one member of the Senate. In the comments concerning his selection, Executive Director Doug Gray reflected on Rust’s longstanding public service and noted his work on health care issues. Rust, in his acceptance remarks, thanked the association and pledged to continue to work “to improve the health and access to health care for all Virginians.” Rust is a board member of the Jeanie Schmidt Free Clinic and during his tenure they have expanded their facilities and increased their client base. Rust also carried legislation that was instrumental in implementing most of the aspects of the federal healthcare law, once it became law.
