SPACE COAST PSA HALL OF FAME NOMINEE
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: In every community there are great men and women who have, by their strength of will and character, become ingrained in the consciousness of our society. They are doers and risk takers who have made a stand and a commitment for the common-good. They are labeled as public servants, but they are truly our natural leaders whose legacies are the milestones of our progress.
The Public Service Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes public service professionals who have dedicated years of service during a distinguished career where they significantly advanced the public safety or service profession, and by substantial service, has furthered the cause of justice and the mission of community service. The award is presented to a deserving individual (living or deceased) who has taken a long-term leadership role in a public or community service profession. Recipients of this award are recognized for making extraordinary contributions and sacrifices through a body of work that positively impacted their organization and community over their lifetime.
MAJEED LONGEST SERVING COUNTY COURT JUDGE
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Judge Alli B. “A.B” Majeed believes public service is a privilege and considers it part of his civic duty to talk to his fellow citizens about the judicial system, our rights and responsibilities as U.S. citizens, and to share his deep and abiding respect for the U.S. Constitution.
An energetic and engaging speaker, Judge Majeed draws on his legal expertise, as well as his personal experience to weave an inspirational, patriotic message.
After the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, Judge Majeed had a renewed sense of purpose to educate the public about America’s unique greatness and the exceptional rights and liberties we enjoy.
Toward this end, he has sacrificed countless mornings before work to speak at breakfast meetings and spent precious dinner and weekend time away from home to speak at schools, churches, and civic organizations.
He has been the keynote speaker at conferences and given scores of commencement speeches at colleges and police academies.
Judge Majeed has also been the keynote speaker at Naturalization Ceremonies across the State, enjoying each opportunity to give the oath of allegiance and expound upon the virtues of our democracy and Constitution.
As Brevard’s longest serving county court judge, Judge Majeed has continuously looked for opportunities to improve the quality of justice. He was elected president of the State Conference of County Court Judges and served as faculty for the National Judicial College in Reno, Nevada.
He also volunteered his time and expertise training new judges statewide at the Florida Judicial College and locally as a mentor judge.
Judge Majeed is a past recipient of the Harvey Ford Award by The Conference of County Court Judges. The Harvey Ford Award recognizes a county court judge who has demonstrated the highest level of profound service to the community, legal profession, and to Florida’s judiciary.
The award is considered the highest honor presented by the Conference, as it recognizes one county court judge for their selfless dedication.
Judge Majeed’s lifelong commitment to furthering the cause of justice and fostering public trust and confidence in our legal system are critical objectives that the courts and law enforcement share.
PUBLISHER’S NOTE: Space Coast Daily is very proud to sponsor and produce the first annual Space Coast Public Service Awards and Hall of Fame Induction, which will be held Saturday, September 24 at the King Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of Eastern Florida State College in Melbourne. With all the seemingly endless politically-charged negative rhetoric in the media aimed at our first responders, we felt it was time as a media entity to make a statement and give these men and women the respect and support they deserve. The public is invited and encouraged to attend this compelling event where all proceeds will benefit the Brevard County Public Safety Charity.
Seating for this celebration of these outstanding public servants is now available, so don’t delay in making your reservation. The festivities will include a meet-and-greet with our outstanding public servants, food and drink, and the induction proceeding – which will feature compelling video tributes.
All proceeds of this event will go to the Brevard County Public Safety Charity which benefits our law enforcement officers and firefighters in their time of need. These funds will help our public safety members when they face critical challenges such as medical emergencies, long term illness or even the tragedy of a line of duty death. This charity organization is designed to help protect those that protect us.
