Public Officials of the Year 2017

Nov 30, 2017
Washington, DC


Each year, Governing hosts our Public Officials of the Year awards dinner in Washington D.C., to honor individual state and local government officials for their outstanding accomplishments in the public sector.

Governing’s Public Officials of the Year are elected, appointed or career officials from any branch of state or local government who are nominated by Governing's readers and evaluated by a selection committee.  After painstaking research, the committee chooses the honorees.  The December issue of Governing will profile each of the honorees.
