ELGL’s 2017 Traeger Award Winners
Chris Hamilton #42 on 2017 Chris Traeger 100 List
Engaging Local Government Leaders‘ (ELGL) Chris Traeger List recognizes the top 100 influencers in local government. Chris Traeger was the city manager for the fictional City of Pawnee, Indiana on the show Park and Recreation. He was known for extreme energy and commitment to improving local government.
The Traeger List is not based on title or longevity. It’s based on an individual’s influence in their community and outside their community through professional associations, mentoring, and writing.
Nominations were submitted from local government professionals from across the country. This year, we empowered ELGL members to select the top ten of the Traeger List. The ELGL Evaluation Team reviewed and selected the remainder of the list.
