Chris Tye praised the endurance of CAMEO and reflected back to what the world was like in 1970 when CAMEO began.
Tye spoke about the CAMEO honorees - Elinor Bourjaily, Judge Ralph J. "Rocky" Perk Jr. and Judge Joseph J. Nahra - and told where they were in 1970 when CAMEO began.
Chris Tye told of the need for organizations like CAMEO to make sure politicians pass the smell test. Tye used the case of LA Clippers Donald Sterling owner to show how CAMEO backs the right people instead of backing them in a corner.
