Maryland’s mayors gathered in Annapolis last week for their 26th annual conference. The focus of the two day event was their municipal legislative agenda, with other educational sessions supplementing the program. Guests included the Speaker of the House, Adrianne Jones, Senate President Bill Ferguson, and the Governor’s Senior Advisor, Andrew Cassilly.
The agenda included a 2020 economic outlook, a presentation by the Governor’s Grants Office, and a discussion on the varying roles of mayors in Maryland hosted by lawyer and former MMA President Jay Gullo. The two-day conference also had a reception at the Governor’s Mansion, a lobby day downtown where the mayors were recognized on both the House and Senate Floors, and plenty of opportunities for the mayors to network and share challenges and solutions to the issues they face every day running Maryland’s municipalities.
