This year’s theme is “Neighbors Serving Neighbors”. Does any phrase more perfectly sum up township government, and the elected leaders who serve them? Township officials are known to drive an absentee ballot to a voter’s home, or meet with residents on their front porches over coffee. Townships provide residents with a level of service, understanding and support that they just can’t get at any other level of government.
This April, MTA will honor that service—and offer connections and education to ignite inspiration and ideas in today’s local leaders—whether you’ve been serving for decades or are brand-new to office.
