The MacArthur Business Alliance (MBA) bestowed Suffolk County Legislator Tom Muratore with one of its top honors: the Jerry Brewi "Go-To-Guy" award in 2012.
“I am humbled and honored to receive this award,” Muratore said in a statement. “I am grateful to be recognized by the MacArthur Business Alliance for doing something I love—serving our great community.”
The Jerry Brewi award is named after a longtime member of the MBA who was widely respected and regarded as the guy the would "go to" when a problem arose, according to MBA President Peter Novara. Brewi died several years ago, but the organization created an award each year to an individual in the community who exemplifies Brewi's service.
Muratore received the award at the MBA's Holiday Luncheon. The MBA is based in Ronkonkoma and was founded in 1994 at the Holiday Inn near MacArthur Airport. The organization supports and advocates for businesses, government initiatives and nonprofits in Suffolk County.
