Sonny Telford wins ABC Charter Cup for 2016

Each year, ABC Delaware honors the ABC contractor member who exemplifies the true meaning of the Merit Shop philosophy and has contributed most to the success of the association. This year’s winner is Sonny Telford of Sobieski Life Safety.

Sonny has always supported ABC’s efforts to protect free enterprise and open competition in Delaware.  He served on the ABC Delaware Board of Directors for six years, 2005-2010.
He and his company have shown outstanding personal and corporate commitment to our association, and his company has been a yearly recipient of the ABC Safety Training Evaluation while he is a regular attendee at all ABC events. The company has also been a constant supporter through sponsorships, event participation or community service projects.

Sonny has been a member of the ABC Legislative/Legal Rights Committee, Membership Committee and Partnering Committee which promotes a mutual understanding and resolution of issues common to contractors, design professionals and owners. Sonny has been a strong supporter and contributor of both our local and national Political Action Committee which helps elect pro-merit shop ¬≠legislators. He is an individual that truly embodies the spirit of ABC.
