Message From the League President

Mayor Janice Kovach (Clinton Town)


Happy New Year! Although we can all expect to have challenges, this is also an opportunity to work together and create the changes we’d like to see in local, state, and federal government. As we begin the New Year, we mayors face increasingly complex issues in daily operations and long-term planning alike. Elected officials need up-to-date information for better planning and administration that can help build your toolkit for meeting and solving problems. Your League provides targeted  educational programming geared specifically to the needs of local elected officials as well as the staff that will help you maximize your operations.      

On Saturday January 9 and Saturday, January 23, an orientation webinar for newly and reelected Municipal Officials will be held. The webinars will provide newly elected officials with a thorough overview of their major areas of responsibility and key state level contacts, while reelected officials will get up-to-date reference materials that provide answers to often asked questions.

We also offer a program exclusively for Elected Officials on the topic of “Budgeting for Elected Officials: Everything You Need to Know to Create, Balance, and Approve Your Municipality’s Budget” The informative session will be on Saturday, March 6 and offers insights on budgeting through a uniquely challenging year.

Please take advantage of this year-round valuable service the League provides to help answer your questions and provide solutions to local issues. Sign up for the above-mentioned seminars, and help get your administration off to a running start.
