City of Saginaw MI -

Saginaw City Council Member Brenda Fay Moore was selected as the 2018-19 Vice President of the Michigan Municipal League Board of Trustees.

Moore was elected vice president by the 18-member board during the Michigan Municipal League’s 2018 Convention which took place last week in Grand Rapids. As vice president, Moore is now in line to become the Michigan Municipal League’s first African American female president in 2020.

“It’s an honor to be elected as vice president on the Michigan Municipal League board and to represent the City of Saginaw at the statewide level,” said Councilwoman Moore, who has served on the League Board of Trustees since October, 2016. This 18-member Board guides the League's internal workings and public policy with support from five legislative committees.

Councilwoman Moore first became involved with the Michigan Municipal League by attending conferences and training to understand her role as a new official after she was elected to Saginaw City Council in 2013. Brenda has also served as the 2nd Vice President for the Michigan Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials and as President of the Board for the Elected Official Academy (EOA).

Councilwoman Moore commented “As an executive officer, I will oversee MML operations, policies, and programs that may benefit the City of Saginaw such as economic development initiatives and grants that may help in funding key programs in the city. My service on the MML Board of Trustees will allow Saginaw to have first-hand knowledge of the issues and opportunities at the State level.”

City Manager Tim Morales commented on the significance of this election for the city, “Saginaw has been a long standing member and supporter of MML using their services for training of elected officials, research and information, wage/salary studies, executive searches, and most recently for our Placemaking initiative to engage the public in shaping our community assets. By having Councilwoman Moore as vice president of the Board of Trustees, the City of Saginaw’s interests will be well-served.”
