During 2012, Sheriff Steve Tompkins served as U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren's Senior Political Advisor under the direction of Roger Lau. Senator Warren congratulated the Sheriff on being a recipient of the Massachusetts Women's Political Caucus "Good Guy" Award and sent him a congratulatory video message.
Senator Elizabeth Warren goes on to say, "during his many years at the Department, Steve has focused on building partnerships that strengthen our communities. He has implemented programs that support women and families, including efforts to combat domestic violence. Steve is a leader with a good heart and strong values and he is worked to support strong women in elected office. I personally am very grateful for his friendship and thoughtful council."
In response to Senator Warren's introduction at the 15th Annual Good Guy Awards, Sheriff Tompkins stated, "I am so thrilled to have had Senator Elizabeth Warren's support and friendship, and this wonderful introduction that she gave me before I received my Good Guys Award".
