Several mayors in Lake County recently received certificates for their efforts to learn how to better run their city's government. Hoosier mayors are invited to participate in the Mayors Institute in Indianapolis to achieve certification through enhanced leadership training and sharing of new, effective strategies. Crown Point Mayor David Uran and Whiting Mayor Joe Stahura each received gold certificates, and are now designated as Indiana City Leadership Ambassadors and are eligible to earn the “Indiana City Leadership Executive” designation by fulfilling further requirements.
Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. was awarded the silver certificate, while Hobart mayor Brian Snedecor received a bronze certificate. For a link to more information on the Mayors Institute, visit http://www.citiesandtowns.org/Education-Events/Mayors-Institute
