Traeger Award winners continue to be recognized by their organizations and local media.
Lynchburg’s City Manager Bonnie Svrcek has been recognized by the organization, Engaging Local Government Leaders (ELGL) as a top influencer in government. In announcing its list of top 100 influencers earlier this month, the organization stated that the list was compiled from nominations received from throughout the country.
“I am beyond honored and humbled to be considered in the company of the other 99 Top Local Government Influencers,” said Svrcek. “Engaging Local Government Leaders (ELGL) is growing to be quite an influential organization among local government professionals in its relative short history. The ELGL leadership is innovative, creative and leading edge.”
Roanoke, VA – Roanoke City Manager Chris Morrill and Communications and Media Coordinator Timothy Martin were recently included in a list of Top 100 Influencers in Government by Engaging Local Government Leaders (ELGL).
Morrill ranked 32nd on the list, while Martin ranked 100th. Roanoke is one of only two cities in the country to have more than one representative listed.
In announcing the list online, ELGL wrote: “Our top 100 is not based on title or longevity. It’s based on the influence that an individual is having in their community and outside their community through professional associations, publications, and presentations,”
ELGL praised Morrill for his leadership and passion for Roanoke, citing the Deschutes Brewery announcement as a recent accomplishment. Martin was recognized for making Roanoke a leader in social media.
