 Mayor’s Launch SCFD GOTV, Oct. 4, 2016
Jim Harrington will receive the Rex Morgan Award for exemplary service to the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) on June 22. Along with six years of serving as chair on the SCFD board from 2005 to 2011, he then chaired the Citizens for Arts to Zoo (CATZ), which supports the SCFD. The political action committee, which provides ongoing advice and support, especially during the periodic voter reauthorization, is made up of a board of regional cultural leaders and citizens. Harrington helped direct the effort during the 2016 renewal. He is still the volunteer chair of the committee.

The SCFD’s statement of Lifetime Achievement award:

Jim Harrington’s service over many decades as treasurer and chairman of the SCFD Board of Directors, as well as his instrumental work in securing reauthorization of the district across multiple elections demonstrates his deep commitment to culture in our metro area. His tireless service has ensured the continued vibrancy of our cultural landscape for generations to come.
