Voted Best Freedom Fighter by the editors of the Worcester Phoenix.
“Ron is an unlikely soldier in the fight to preserve our personal freedoms. The only extreme thing about Madnick has been his overwhelming, 30-year-strong dedication to a job that pays him little but plays such an important role in all our lives... He’s at every meeting, in every neighborhood, present in all media. If you call him... he’ll invariable lend a patient ear and give pointed advice. If he’s not in, he’ll return your call promptly... If you Madnick, then who? We (or, more accurately, our rights) are lucky to have him.” Worcester Phoenix
