Two Greenfield elected officials were installed in leadership positions of the Massachusetts Municipal Association (MMA) at the association’s 2018 Annual Business Meeting on January 20.
Greenfield Mayor William Martin was elected president of the Massachusetts Mayors’ Association (MMaA), a sub organization of the Massachusetts Municipal Association. Councilor Isaac Mass was elected second vice president of the Massachusetts Municipal Councilors’ Association.
“It’s a great day for Greenfield when our small community is represented by two top statewide positions,” said Martin. “I am looking forward to advocating for Greenfield at the state level. We have other Western Mass officials representing the interests of Franklin County as well.”
The Massachusetts Municipal Association is a nonprofit, nonpartisan association that provides advocacy, training, publications, research and other services to Massachusetts cities and towns. The MMA is the only statewide organization that brings municipal
officials together to establish unified policies, to advocate these policies, and to ensure the effective delivery of services to community residents.
Mayor Martin will also serve on the MMA Executive Board. Mayor Narkewicz of Northampton will take Mayor Martin’s place as the District 1 representative for the MMaA, which represents the eleven mayors of the four western Massachusetts counties.
