Event Recap


2020 Salute to Local Government recap

By Therese Schneider

Innovative projects, responses to COVID-19, and local leaders honored at 28th annual event

Attendees from across the state tuned in to our virtual Salute to Local Government earlier this week to join us in celebrating excellence in government and to hear from our keynote speaker, Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley. While the pandemic required that we reimagine this year’s awards program, it did not stop us from recognizing all of our local governments, school districts, and individual public sector employees who have gone the extra mile and sacrificed for the common good this year.

Congrats to all of this year’s winners! You can watch their video vignettes here.

Many thanks again to our event sponsors, virtual “table” sponsors, and individual registrants who supported our first-ever virtual Salute.
