LeadersLink is establishing an annual nationwide award to recognize an elected official at the city or county level whose efforts have enabled his or her community to recover successfully from a disaster. It is named in honor of LeadersLink’s first disaster mentor, former Waveland, Mississippi Mayor Tommy Longo, who passed away in March and spent years coaching communities around the country through the disaster recovery process.

Any individual elected to office at the city or county level of a community that suffered physical damage following a disaster sometime in the past 10 years.

Completed nomination forms should be emailed to Info@leaderslink.org by December 31, 2019.
