Mayor Thomas A. Brown was awarded the E.A. Mosher Excellence in Local Government Award at this week’s Annual League Conference sponsored by the League of Kansas Municipalities.
The award is presented annually to an elected official who has not only demonstrated outstanding service to his or her own city, but has also shown an active commitment to strong local government and service to the League of Kansas Municipalities. Named in honor of E.A. Mosher, League Executive Director from 1960 to 1991, this award is designed to honor excellence and leadership at the highest level.
“I look at this as an award for the community,” Brown said. “We have a very good staff so it makes it easier to lead. I said this in Topeka, but I’m not a detailed person, so if the staff doesn’t get the details, I’m in trouble.”
“We talked a lot about relationships. Relationships are built public to public, we have a great relationship with many working things with the county and surrounding communities and with the state and even with some of our representation in the congress. All of those help us to be the best we can be.”
