Mayor Pawlowski was named the new President of the Pennsylvania Municipal League during the annual business meeting at the PML’s 114th annual convention held recently in State College, PA.
“I am very pleased to have been chosen to fill this important leadership position by representatives of local governments from across Pennsylvania,” Pawlowski said. “I welcome the opportunity to serve and offer the perspective of the state’s municipalities on the issues we face each and every day.”
The PML gathers municipal elected and appointed officials from across the state to discuss issues facing the Commonwealth’s municipalities and established legislative policy for the coming year.
Pawlowski was elected 1st Vice President in June 2012. He led a session on the Mayors’ Council on Pipeline Safety at this year’s convention. He has been a member of the League’s “Core Communities in Crisis” task force.
Convention delegates elected Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter 1st Vice President and Lancaster Mayor Rick Gray 2nd Vice President.
