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. The honorees are extraordinary public servants who provide distinguished leadership, strong management expertise and good governance. Governing is honored to announce our 2018 honorees in mid-November with an official press release.
Governing's Public Officials 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.
We accept nominations year round. We invite you to nominate an individual for Governing's Public Officials of the Year for 2019. Do you know an outstanding state, city or county leader who has shown true courage, innovation, creativity and excellence in his or her job?
