II. Elected Officials Hall of Fame
Induction into the Mayors’ Hall of Fame or the Elected Officials’ Hall of Fame recognizes municipal officials who have selflessly guided their communities through the good times and troubled times with little recognition of their sacrifice. This token of appreciation will shine a light on these pillars in our communities and hold them up as an example of civic pride for all citizens to emulate.
