Waltham Mayor Jeannette McCarthy was elected president of the Massachusetts Mayors’ Association in late January.
McCarthy was elected by her fellow mayors at the Massachusetts Municipal Association’s annual meeting on Jan. 24 and 25 in Boston, according to a recent release from the association. The state Mayors’ Association is a member group of the overall association.
Here’s what state Municipal Association Executive Director Geoffrey Beckwith had to say of McCarthy:
“Mayor McCarthy is widely recognized by her mayoral colleagues and local officials as a remarkable leader in her community and across the Commonwealth. The mayors of our state have asked her to be their leader in advancing the needs of our cities and towns, and we are very pleased that she has accepted this key post.”
